Fermentation and Distillation Certificate


 

The College of Agriculture, Community and the Sciences is now offering a Certificate in Fermentation and Distillation Science that prepares students to work in the distillation, brewing and fermentation industries by providing real-world, hands-on experience in the chemistry, food safety, and marketing and management required in these growing fields. The bourbon industry, based in the heart of central Kentucky near Kentucky State University’s Frankfort campus, has a $8.6 billion economic impact on the state and provides more than 20,100 jobs to Kentuckians. The craft beer industry, which has grown 600% over the past five years, contributes $657 million and provides 18,000 jobs in Kentucky. The state’s wine and specialty food industries as well as its value-added markets are also growing at a steady pace.
