Food Science and Nutrition Programme

Food and life cannot be separated. Nutritious and high quality food is not only important for the development of a country with healthy people but is also a competitive factor in the global economy and further increases national income. The Food Science and Nutrition program combines aspects of food science and aspects of nutrition. Food science focuses on the production, processing, preservation, marketing and quality of food. Nutrition focuses on food intake and nutrient use. The combination of these two aspects can produce nutritious and quality food products in a planned and dynamic manner.
