Brewing Science Certificate - Industry Partners

The leaders shaping the brewing culture in and around Pennsylvania also shape the USciences Brewing Science Certificate program.

We have engaged in formal partnerships with top local breweries to ensure our students benefit from the expertise of artisans and learn the skills today’s employers need most. Experienced brewmasters and managers advise on the curriculum and, in both classrooms and labs, teach the finer points of what goes into brewing good beer.

Strategic University Research Partnerships are always welcome.  If there is a specific area of research that would benefit your brewery or business, please let us know.
