B. Voc. Food Science & Technology
Department: Food Science & Technology
B. Voc. (Bachelor of Vocation) in Food Science and Technology is a three-year duration multiple exit undergraduate budding course in India that can be pursued in an ample array of fields amid which food technology is one. Across the world, the food-processing sector has a large potential for growth and socio-economic impact as it leads to income generation by creating jobs for the rural poor and thus reduces the burden on the agricultural sector.
It also helps in the reduction of wastage, value addition, foreign exchange earnings and enhancing manufacturing competitiveness. The policymakers have identified food processing as a key sector in encouraging food processing for MSME’s that contribute to the entrepreneurial culture. This sector serves as a vital link between the agricultural and industrial segments of the economy. Adequate focus on this could greatly alleviate our concerns on food security and food inflation.
Food Science and Technology courses are devoted to Laboratory Work / Project / Industrial Training / In-plant Internship. NSQF based FICSI certification (Food Industry Capacity and Skill Initiative) on skill demand in food processing industries is the ability to use appropriate and modern tools, equipment, and technologies specific to their job roles.
