The Food Technology programme aimed to serve the special need of providing high-quality manpower for the growing modern food industry. Recent years, Food Industry sector is one of the most fundamental and critical sectors in the growing economy.
The Department of Food Technology was established in 2018 which offers a UG programme (B.Tech) in Food Technology. The department integrates intellectual and infrastructural strengths to nurture scientific temper and skills to excel in the domains Food Technology. The department aims to educate, train and develop cutting-edge food technologists capable of product development and food safety to improve the quality of human life and environment. Also, the department aims to develop competent food technologists with their skills adequately honed to succeed in the Food Industry sectors.
We believe that this approach to teaching-learning, coupled with practical experience gained during industrial training in reputed organizations, equips our students to handle the challenges posed by the Food Industry.
