Why take this course?

M.Tech. Food Technology - Being a sunrise sector, the food industry is going to be a major employer in the coming future and food engineering is one of the core areas of interest for upcoming new students. Food engineering is a multidisciplinary field of applied physical sciences which combines science, microbiology, and engineering education for food and related industries. Center for Emerging Technology, Jain (Deemed-to-be University) is one of the food engineering universities that provide various scholarships and provisions as a part of program for attending international conferences and workshops at IIMs, AFSTI meetings, IITs, etc. Research level laboratories funded by Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MOFPI), Govt. of India and on campus placements are also available.

What will I experience?

M.Tech. Food Technology course will help you combine a lot of concepts and sciences to bring out the best ways to make sure the processed food stays neat, safe, tasty and healthy. From the process of the food, involving things like packaging, processing, preserving and things that are required for the distribution. You will also have guidance for doing research in India/abroad. Training in food industries and internships are also provided.
