The small program within a large university allowed for individual attention and interaction with the faculty.
Food Science and Human Nutrition
North Riverside, Illinois

Annette Zyck, a 1985 graduate in food science and human nutrition (FSHN) from the University of Illinois, says what she enjoys most about her job with World Wide Quality Systems is working collaboratively with internal and external global partners to deliver consistent information about ingredients and products. She says that her U of I education introduced her to a variety of areas to help her succeed.

“Exposure to multiple disciplines in the FSHN curriculum laid a solid foundation for my career entry,” Annette says. “Working in commercialization, research, and product development enhanced that foundation to give me broad knowledge to work across many product categories.”

Annette was involved with the Food Science Club while at U of I, and a food science internship with Jewel Foods built on the foundation provided by the FSHN curriculum. Those opportunities together with the culture of the FSHN department made for Annette’s most enjoyable experiences at the University of Illinois.

“Camaraderie among the students developed as a result of the small school feel in the food science program,” Annette says. “The small program within a large university allowed for individual attention and interaction with the faculty.”
