You want the very best in baking education. This is how you get it. 

Our benchmark Baking Science and Technology course is an intensive, 16-week residency combining science and baking tradition. Baking Science and Technology (BS&T) graduates walk away with the skills and confidence to develop new and innovative products, troubleshoot production systems, and lead the way in processes. Learn about admissions and fill out an application to apply. 

BS&T is continually adapted to provide relevant, current, and effective information about baking ingredients, processes, products, troubleshooting, operations, food safety, and product quality. Every lesson has real world application because every baking instructor has real world baking industry experience.

We strive to meet changing industry demands and the needs of today's learners:

  • Continuous curriculum review adds value to the course by introducing new topics as issues arise
  • Labs and lectures are grouped to enhance student comprehension and retention.
  • Improved student orientation process gets you engaged and learning on the first day.


The rigorous curriculum focuses on the technology of baking in a production setting. Through comprehensive treatment of vital baking topics in lectures, students learn the "whys" of baking, then see "how" the theory of baking is transferred to production in hands-on, state-of-the-art labs.
