Bachelor's Degree in Milling Science and Management

B.S. in milling science and management

A career in milling science and management offers outstanding opportunities. Demand for milling products — flour and grain — remains constant, and K-State offers the nation’s only bachelor’s degree in milling.

Salaries for milling science graduates are consistently among the highest in the nation. Graduates may choose positions in production areas while others may enter fields in research and development or quality control.


The K-State difference

Students select one of two areas within milling science: operations or chemistry, taking courses utilizing the department’s grain-grading laboratory, cereal chemistry laboratories and physical dough-testing laboratories.

The department’s facilities include a state-of-the-art pilot mill, the Hal Ross Flour Mill, where students have the opportunity to receive hands-on experience in many areas of the milling process, as well as process several different types of grains.

As the nation’s only bachelor’s program in milling, K-State is a major supplier of graduates entering the industry. Many graduates report seeing college friends on the job and at industry meetings.
