Food Technology (Food Tech.) is the application of food science to the selection, preservation, processing and packaging of raw produce or the value added, safe, nutritious and wholesome food fit for distribution and consumption. Food Science is a discipline concerned with all the technical aspects of food, beginning with harvest or slaughtering or milking or catching and ending with its processing and consumption. Higher level of processing in Food Processing Sector helps in reduction of wastage, improves value addition, ensures better returns to farmers and promotes employment. This sector also addresses critical issues of food and nutritional security & food inflation and provides wholesome nutritious food to the masses.


Hence, the remarkable growth of the Indian Food Industry has created the need for qualified and trained personnel in the fields of food technology and engineering, food quality analysis, packaging, storage, cold chain management and safety. Considering this, the Department of Food Technology was started in the year 2021, offering a  degree program – Bachelor of  Food Technology. The Department was established with well furnished laboratories of Food Microbiology and Food Chemistry.

The degree program is designed to study the physical, chemical and microbiological aspects of food materials and unit operations involved in processing them. The students are trained in the areas of food microbiology, processing, preservation, packaging and value addition of food, for complete food supply chain management from farm to fork. The main focus of our department is in to processing and preservation, which involved stabilizing and sterilizing foods, preventing spoilage and preventing nutrients in food for prolonged periods of time, more specifically adopting traditional and technological advancement in processing of food.

The Department has a student association – SAMYOGA,  inaugurated on 07/7/2022, by Dr. Aashithosh A Inamdhar, Hon. Vice President AFSTI, HQ (Sr. Principal Scientist, Flour Milling, CFTRI, Mysore). The purpose of the association is to enable the students to explore and develop management, leadership and research skills by organizing various activities related to their program
