When you obtain a Food Tech undergrad degree, you can work in the industry and the academia where your main goal is in improving the quality and safety of foods and, more excitingly, creating new food products. You would be working with the latest advancement made in basic research, process engineering, packaging technology, and management techniques that are part of the food production chain. Our program is specifically designed to provide technical knowledge to support the food processing industry to be more efficient and with minimal waste.
A programme accredited by the US Institute of Food Technologists
Our Food Tech program is the first undergrad programme in Malaysia that is IFT-approved. This means that the programme is internationally recognised and will provide you many global career opportunities.
A Career in Food Tech
Food technologists use the laws of science and engineering to produce, process, evaluate, package, and distribute foods. They may concentrate on basic research, product development, quality control, processing, packaging, labeling, technical sales or market research. Food technologists are also involved in monitoring and developing new food products, as well as working together with production engineers to produce products with consistent flavor, color and texture in large quantities. Food technologists may develop ways to process, preserve, package, or store food, according to industry and government specifications and regulations. They may work in production or technical management. They check on food standards, laws, and safety. They also look into sanitation, water supply and waste management.
