Our Facilities

The Food Science and Technology Programme has a research corridor and and a teaching lab suite. There are all equipped with basic and special equipment for teaching and research purposes. The current research emphasis are in the areas of food processing and engineering, food biopolymer, food functionality, food bioactive molecules, flavour and food fermentation, molecular and clinical nutrition. Besides the programme also has the access to facilities at Chemistry Department.
