The bachelor of food industry is the combination of industrial engineering, food science and food technology. Thus it is the understanding the basics for calculations of efficiency, productivity and physical fundamentals of food plus the biochemical and chemical properties. Furthermore, students will be exposed to the different stages of the food value chain from farm to fork. Students will start by taking the basic courses of chemistry, biology, biochemistry, physics and calculus. Following that, they take courses that are more related to the field, such as food engineering, food manufacturing processes, food microbiology, food chemistry, animal and plant pre and post harvest attribute to quality and food processing of different products. In addition to that, course will be integrated where students need to do training in a food establishment in order for them to get first-hand experience of the on field situation.
FDI is an undergraduate food study combining the food engineering, food science and food technology information to optimize the problem solving of the different situation raised on the different stages such as selection, processing, packaging, distribution, and use of safe, nutritious, and wholesome food.
Courses typically studied during this major are food engineering, food packaging technology, food microbiology, food chemistry, dairy/meat technology and different food processing. Food industry study the mass balance, rheological properties, hydraulics, heat treatment, canning etc. and their effect on the physical, microbiological, and chemical makeup of food. This knowledge will help the graduate to develop ways to process, preserve, package, or store food, according to industry and government specifications and regulations.
The major is a career originating in nature and opens many job scopes after completion such as:
The main objectives of the Bachelor of Food Industry Program are to:
The graduates of the program are expected to develop skills, knowledge, technical know-how, behavior and motivation that support the objectives of the program. Specifically, graduates of the Bachelor of Food Industry Program will acquire the following:
