Program Description

Master in Food Engineering and Bioprocess Technology (FEBT)

Asian Institute of Technology School of Environment, Resources and Development (SERD)

Master of Food Engineering and Bioprocess Technology (FEBT)

FEBT focuses on two areas of specialization: Food Process Engineering and Bioprocess Technology. Food Process Engineering focuses on the application of engineering principles to the design of postharvest and food processing equipment; changes that may occur within products during handling, processing, and storage; measuring and controlling the quality of raw food materials; food supply chain safety; the handling and utilization of wastes generated during on-farm processing. Bioprocess Technology dedicated to the developments in biotechnology and its applications in agro/food, functional food, biopolymers, dairy and meat science, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Industrial bioprocess technology for the conversion of raw agricultural products to useful food products, biomaterials with specific growth promoting properties are developed for application in organic farming. To strengthen applicability of microorganisms for specific purposes, courses are given in genetic engineering of microorganisms. DNA with interesting properties is transferred to produce strains for industrial applications.
