Bachelor in Food Technology

Food Technology is a branch of food science which deals with the actual production processes to make foods. To fulfill and maintain its nutritional quality, food must be both safely produced and safely delivered to the consumer. This requires processing technologies to convert raw materials into foods as well as preservation technologies to increase the shelf life of foods.

The food industry is very competitive and is constantly changing to meet consumer demands and use technological innovations. Modern advanced technologies allow the production of wholesome and safe foods, which is able to meet the demands of today’s fast-paced consumer-driven economy. Many of these technologies are now being adapted to Indonesia’s rapidly growing food industry, and there is still a need for new solutions to strengthen the competitiveness of Indonesia’s food and beverage industry, which promises an exciting future for students in the food technology area. Industry and governments need highly qualified professionals who can combine knowledge of food science and technology with an ability to apply and maintain advanced quality systems meeting international expectations.
