FOOD TECHNOLOGY

  offers B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. levels which studies natural food ingredients, fundamentals and methods used for processing of ingredients into food products, quality and safety assurance of food products, principles and processes of developing new food products. In addition to studying in the classroom and food laboratory, students in the Food Technology Department have the chance to learn through internships and by engaging in cooperative education in the actual workplace like in government offices, private companies or food industry factories. This links the world of education and the real world of work for a smooth entry into the labor market in the future.
