The M. Tech. in Food Biotechnology interdisciplinary course at the Institute of Chemical Technology has been initiated to impart education in a new area of specialization viz., Food Biotechnology to enable students to work in areas such as food fermentations, applications of enzymes in food processing, food product development etc.


Program Outcomes (M. Tech. Food Biotechnology)

  • Acquire in-depth knowledge of Food Biotechnology, including wider and global perspective, with an ability to discriminate, evaluate, analyse and synthesise existing and new knowledge, and integration of the same for enhancement of knowledge.
  • Analyse complex technological problems critically, apply independent judgement for synthesising information to make intellectual and/or creative advances for conducting research in a wider theoretical, practical and policy context.
  • Think laterally and originally, conceptualise and solve technological problems, evaluate a wide range of potential solutions for those problems and arrive at feasible, optimal solutions after considering public health and safety, cultural, societal and environmental factors in the core areas of expertise (Food Biotechnology).
  • Extract information pertinent to unfamiliar problems through literature survey and experiments, apply appropriate research methodologies, techniques and tools, design, conduct experiments, analyse and interpret data, demonstrate higher order skill and view things in a broader perspective, contribute individually/in group(s) to the development of scientific/technological knowledge in Food Biotechnology.

Mission of Department at the Institute of Chemical Technology
