Welcome to Department of Food Technology

Food technology is a branch of science in which knowledge of food science is applied in manufacturing and preservation of food products. Food technologists study the chemical, physical and microbiological makeup of the food and are involved in its processing, preservation, packaging and storage in safe, wholesome and nutritious form. Food technologists are mainly required in food industries, mills, distilleries, packaging industry and hotels. They are employed as professionals in quality assurance, food production, analytical and research laboratories and new product development. Food technology professionals also work as consultants, advisor, auditors in inspection boards or quality assurance departments. Companies like Hindustan Lever, Britannia, Danone, Heinz, Kellog, Nestle, Pepsico, Cadbury, Kraft Food, Intertek, Haldiram, Hind Agro Foods, Duke Food and many others recruit food technologists periodically as product development manager, food safety experts, and quality assurance personnel and as scientists for developing new products or bringing about an improvement in existing products.

The Food Technology program at Jamia Hamdard aims at producing professionally competent, proficient and highly skilled personnel in the field of food technology, with a knowledge of various aspects of food science and technology including the quality of raw material, packaging standards and methodology, health and hygiene parameters, processing techniques, storage and food value and educate them on the methodologies for extracting useful by products. The course content includes the functional foods, nutraceuticals, nonalcoholic beverages, medicated water, dietary supplements, novel biodegradable material, transgenic and organic food, good manufacturing and post-harvest practices, fundamentals of chemical engineering, dairy technology, and bioprocess engineering.
