About us

The Department of Food Engineering & Technology prepares students to cater to the ever increasing demand of various facets of food in business and industry. Nowadays food consumers are more conscious about their food and health requirements. Food industries play the dual role of making food safe and good, as well as contribute to the enhancement of national economic growth by using skilled and qualified  food engineers and technologists  but there is lack of qualified food engineers and technologists in Bangladesh. The mission of Food Engineering & Technology department is to produce skilled and qualified manpower for ensuring the production of safe food as well as for the food business. Recent advances and development in Food Engineering & Technology has had dramatic impact on the food production, processing and packaging methods towards safer, tasty & quality foods. Career in Food Engineering & Technology is diverse and challenging. Qualification in food will help students to pursue careers in food industries as well as in research.
