Food Engineering & Technology

Industrially manufactured food products and agriculturally produced raw materials such as grain pass through various stages of processing along with physical, chemical and microbiological changes before they are ready to be sold as the food that we buy. In India the food processing industry is gaining momentum as the segment of consumer foods is witnessing a remarkable growth which has necessitated the need for qualified and trained personnel in the fields of food processing, analysis, packaging, preservation, storage, distribution, safety and cold chain management. Considering this Amal Jyothi College of Engineering has introduced the Bachelor’s degree in Food Technology which offers students education and training on a scientific basis and closely related to practice. Our courses are designed to expand understanding of the biological, microbiological, chemical, physical, sensory, nutritional, and engineering properties of foods and beverages. We offer a comprehensive undergraduate program that prepares and makes the students fit for leadership positions in the food industry, food research, academia, and government. On completing graduation, the students will also have developed enough skill and confidence to plan, organize and manage entrepreneurship to open food industry units of their own. This program also will help in the transfer of research-based information and technology to consumers, farmers, food and beverage companies, and government agencies to enhance the availability, quality, and safety of our food supply.
