    Professional options

    Salaries for milling science graduates are consistently among the highest for college graduates. In addition, some milling graduates climb the career ladder quickly. It’s not unusual for students to be in charge of their own mill within just a few years, and some will become officials in major companies within 10 to 15 years.


    Personal interest and personality are the keys to determining what kind of jobs milling graduates
    select. Graduates may choose positions in production areas, while others may enter fields such as research and development of quality control. There are positions in milling equipment manufacturing ranging from engineering and research to sales.

    Career options include:
    • Plant manager
    • Production engineer
    • Technical sales
    • Head miller
    • Commodity trader
    • Quality control manager
    • Milling operations manager

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
