B. Tech.  in Food Engineering and Technology

The four year B. Tech. programme in Food Processing Technology is started from session 2010-2011.             

The B. Tech. programme is intensive and the syllabus has incorporated core courses covering all areas of food technology and allied subjects as well as elective courses on technologies for processing various foods.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs) of the programme of B. Tech. in Food Engineering and Technology are as follows:

I.       To prepare students to excel in practicing their technical profession or in pursuing higher studies by facilitating rigorous education of global standing.

II.    To provide students with a solid foundation in mathematical, scientific and engineering fundamentals required to solve engineering problems of the food processing and to contribute to the field of food engineering and technology through engineering research.

III. To educate and train students with sound scientific and engineering breadth to be competent to comprehend, analyze, design, and create novel products and technical solutions for the real life problems.

IV. To inculcate in students the professional and ethical attitude, effective communication skills, teamwork skills, multidisciplinary approach, and an ability to relate engineering issues to broader context of society, environmental and general well-being.

V.   To provide with an academic environment to make the student aware of the significance of practicing written codes and guidelines, thriving for excellence, leading for betterment and need of life-long learning for excelling in professional career in food engineering and technology.

Program outcomes (POs) of the B. Tech. in Food Engineering and Technology are as follows:

    Graduates will demonstrate adequate knowledge of mathematics, applied sciences, and engineering sciences, and apply them to the solutions of food engineering

     Graduates will demonstrate an ability to analyze both complete systems and the constituent parts of food processing systems, reaching substantiated     conclusions using first principles.

      Graduates will demonstrate an ability to develop and design industrial food production systems and processes with regard to human needs and conditions, and the goals of society.

      Graduates will use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.

      Graduates will create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering, analytical and computer based with a clear understanding of the limitations of such tools.

     Graduates will apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal, and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the technological advancement in food processing engineering.

     Graduates will demonstrate an understanding of the impact of the professional technological solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and the need for sustainable development.

      Graduates will demonstrate an ability to make judgments with regard to relevant scientific, social and ethical aspects in the field.

     Graduates will demonstrate the ability to plan and execute advanced assignments in the field in an independent manner also as a team member in a variously constituted group.

     Graduates will demonstrate an ability to give a clear account of his/her level of knowledge and various types of project work, both orally and in writing, in an international context, involving the reporting of background material, studies and findings.

      Graduates will demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one's own work, as a member and/or as the leader in a team, to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.

      Graduates will demonstrate an ability to identify his/her need of further knowledge in the field, to acquire new knowledge and to integrate this with existing  knowledge.
