For the past several years, the Dairy & Food Science department of the State University of New York, Agricultural and Technical College at Canton has included in the curriculum an elective course for seniors that has proven most successful in motivating the student. They choose a problem of applied research that is related to their major, the milk and food industry. The problem is carried on during the senior year. It has been found that the course has been most rewarding to the students and has done much toward stimulating them to make use of the classroom and laboratory training received in other courses.
