Department of Food Processing
The remarkable growth of the Indian Food Industry, has created the need for qualified and trained personnel in the fields of food processing technology and engineering, analysis, packaging, storage, cold chain management and safety. Considering this, the Department of Food Processing Technology stabilised in 2005, offers various degree programs such as Bachelor of Technology, Master of Technology, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy programmes. Our department has unique distinction of having a Centre for Research and Development with Pilot Scale level Plant and Machinery, Food Quality Testing Laboratory, Food Processing Training Centre to give hands on training in plant operations and product manufacture. Industry internships, collaboration with food industries, sponsored scholarships, certification courses by national and international certification bodies are some of the highlights of the department.
Our degree programs are designed to study the physical, chemical and microbiological makeup of food materials and mechanization involved in processing them. Our goal is to train the students in the areas of post-harvest technology of food crops, processing, preservation, packaging and value addition of food, for complete food supply chain management from farm to fork.
