The department was established in 1992 to provide technical education in field of Food Engineering & Technology. It caters to the Technical manpower requirements at various levels by adopting a new concept of modular system in technical education with emphasis on practical training in industry.
The department has twelve (12) regular faculty members, out of which there are four Professors, seven Associate Professors and one Assistant Professor. In the technical staff, there are five (5) regular technicians, out of which there are two senior technicians.
The major goals of the department are to impart quality education in the field of Food Science, Technology and Engineering. The department has the state of art R&D facilities. The innovative process development and transfer of technology is another aim of the department. The department is also imparting time to time training to rural youth to make them self sustainable
