SKU: IIT Kharagpur Category:



This course will cover basics of dairy (liquid food) food processing and preservation technologies required in any dairy and food processing industries. The basic knowledge on dairy food processing is intermingled with most of the unit operations at some or other stage of processing. Since, this basic aspect of food processing and preservation is not taught in most of the Agricultural engineering institutions elaborately, a comprehension of these aspects of processing and preservation will enrich the knowledge base of the students in general.



Agricultural Engineering, Food Technology, Food Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Biotechnological Engineering, Thermal Engineering, Biotechnology


Any Processing Industry such as Britannia, ITC, Hindustan Lever, Mother Dairy, Amul, etc.
