Paulina Helfer Santander
Food Industry Engineering major
"The academic approach of the USIL Food Industry Engineering program offers students alternatives you don’t find at other universities. In addition to studying the scientific and technical part, we learn about business and nutrition. We also have the opportunity to take courses at the modern USIL agro-industrial plant in Pachacámac, where we participate in the preparation of products such as fruit nectars or hamburgers. Our course work is very demanding, in the classroom as well as in the lab."
