About the

The B.Tech Food Science and Technology program are designed to address the crucial challenges faced by developing countries in ensuring food security for their growing populations. As a fundamental necessity for survival, the study and application of food science and technology principles play a pivotal role in transforming the economic and cultural structures of these nations.

The curriculum of the B.Tech Food Science and Technology program revolves around the recognition that food is not merely sustenance but a complex product that requires sophisticated scientific knowledge and technological innovation for production, processing, and preservation. The program serves as a key to converting raw agricultural materials into a diverse range of properly processed and preserved foods. This conversion is not just a scientific process but a contribution to the overall well-being, economy, standard of living, and progress of humanity.

The program also includes practical demonstrations of processes, equipment, and packaging relevant to the food industry. This hands-on approach ensures that students not only grasp theoretical concepts but also acquire practical skills that are directly applicable in real-world scenarios. The exposure to industry-relevant practices prepares students for the dynamic and evolving field of food science and technology.
