The Technology Boot Camp is a 5-day course that provides information for assessing and validating the application of MATS and MAPS technology. Held at Washington State University where the microwave processing was developed, this boot camp is led by MATS inventor Juming Tang, Ph.D., Regents Professor and Distinguished Chair of Food Engineering.

Designed for food innovation, R&D, thermal process and quality assurance professionals, this boot camp covers:

  • fundamental principles of microwave heating
  • thermal process validation
  • food science
  • quality assurance
  • bench-top sample production for MATS and MAPS.

In addition to covering the fundamental science of MATS and MAPS technology, this boot camp also provides participants a hands-on opportunity to develop bench-top prototypes utilizing microwave processing technology.
