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 progarmme 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 on which food science and technology is based.
Career Path


Our graduates have unlimited oppurtunities in getting jobs either in public or private sectors. In public sectors they may work at food related government bodies like Department of Health, Educational Institutions, MARDI, SIRIM, MPOB and others. They may join various industries like cereal manufacturing, bakery products, sugar refinery, manufacturing of flour-based sweetening agent,chocolate and confectionary products, fish processing, milk and dairy products, fruits and vegetable products, canning industry, edible oils and its products and beverages. The scope of career may vary from production supervisors, quality assurance supervisors, technicians, assistant chemist, R&D assistants, operators and others.
