Centre for Food Science and Technology: INBRIEF
M.Tech Food Science and Technology
Food science& technology is a discipline concerned with all the technical aspects of food. It is considered as a branch of the agricultural sciences and technology, and is usually distinct from the field of nutrition. Examples of the activities of food scientists include the development of new food products, design of processes to produce these foods, choice of packaging materials, shelf-life studies, and sensory evaluation of the product with trained expert panels or potential consumers, as well as microbiological and chemical testing.Food scientists at universities may study more fundamental phenomena that are directly linked to the production of particular food product and its properties. Food science is in fact a highly interdisciplinary applied science. It incorporates concepts from many different fields including microbiology, chemical engineering, biochemistry, nutrition, marketing, and many others. It is an exciting area that applies a blend of basic sciences such as biology, chemistry, and physics with microbiology, biochemistry, mathematics, and engineering to improve the taste, nutrition, and value of the world's food supply. Food scientists extend this knowledge to the development of new food products, packaging, processes, and equipment.
Sambalpur University established the Center for Food Science & Technology in 2010 as an interdisciplinary center of study to offer courses on Food Science & technology and carry out research in areas of food science, food technology, food processing and Nutrition. The emphasis of the center is interdisciplinary study with social relevance. The centers at present have the associated regular faculties of the three collaborating departments of the University, i.e. Department of Home Science, School of Life Sciences, School of Chemistry. The center started functioning with the M.Tech programme in Food Science & Technology with the support ofMinistry of Food Processing Industries, Government of India.
1. M. Tech course in Food Science & Technology
2. M.Sc Food Science and Nutrition.
3. P.G Diploma in Food Science & Technology (1 Year)
The Center for Food Science and Technology has been established by the University to offer courses on Food Science and Technology and to carry out research in areas of Food Science, Food Technology, Food Processing and Nutrition. The centre has its own well equipped laboratory of nearly 1 crore with Air conditioned class room with LCD projector facility. Besides above facilities Lab facility of School of Chemistry and School of Life science also cater to requirement of students. The centre will occupy it own three stair building by coming academic session.
