B.Sc Food Technology is a three-year undergraduate program that delves into the science and technology behind food, its production, preservation, and processing.

Subjects covered under this course:

Food Chemistry: The chemical composition of various food groups (carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, vitamins, minerals, water) and the changes they undergo during processing and storage.

Food Microbiology: The role of microorganisms in food spoilage and foodborne diseases, and the methods used to control them.

Food Processing and Engineering: The application of engineering principles in unit operations like size reduction, filtration, evaporation, drying, aseptic processing, and packaging.

Food Analysis: Techniques used to measure food quality and safety parameters like chemical composition, physical properties, and presence of contaminants.

Food Biotechnology: The use of microorganisms and enzymes to improve food quality, develop new food products, and enhance food safety.

Nutrition: The principles of human nutrition and the role of food in health and disease.

Food Regulations and Quality Control: The regulatory framework governing food safety and quality in India.


Candidates must have passed 10th, +2 with at least 50% marks (45% for SC/ST/OBC candidates) in Science stream with Physics, Chemistry, and Biology/Mathematics as compulsory subjects.

Admission Process:

Admission to B.Sc. Food Technology programs is based on merit (marks obtained in 10th, +2) or entrance exams conducted by universities. 

Skills Gained:

Laboratory skills: Students gain hands-on experience in using various laboratory equipment for food analysis.

Problem-solving skills: The program emphasizes critical thinking and problem-solving skills to address challenges in food processing and product development.

Communication skills: Effective communication skills are essential for working in teams and collaborating with colleagues from different disciplines.

Business acumen: Students gain an understanding of the food industry, including marketing, consumer trends, and food regulations.

Future Scope:

The food industry is constantly evolving, and there is a growing demand for food technologists with expertise in areas like:

Functional foods: Foods that offer health benefits beyond basic nutrition.

Minimal processing: Techniques that preserve the freshness and nutritional value of food.

Sustainable food production: Practices that minimize environmental impact.

Food safety and traceability: Ensuring the safety of food throughout the supply chain.
