Bachelor of Chemical Engineering Technology (Hons.) in Food

Sarjana Muda Teknologi Kejuruteraan Kimia (Kepujian) Makanan

This programme applies the principles of chemical engineering and food chemistry to the large-scale processing of food. Foods must be nutritious, i.e., provide the essential nutrients for growth and health; they must be safe, free from dangerous micro-organisms and chemical contaminants; and, if they are to be consumed at all, they must be attractive in taste and appearance. In this programme, you learn how to adapt the unit operations of traditional chemical engineering to the specific requirements of food processing. The main objective of this programme is to make it possible for well-trained chemical engineers to work in the food industry, possibly one of the largest manufacturing industry in Malaysia; graduates that are market ready upon graduation.

The programme includes exposure to areas of food chemistry, food microbiology, food engineering, food safety, food processing and the nutritive value of food. It is also is designed to provide depth and breadth in the relevant physical and biological sciences in which food science and technology is based.
