OVERVIEW

Students interested in the production, processing, packaging, safety and/or transportation of the world’s food supply will be taught to combine engineering (fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and mass transfer, etc.), math, and science (biology, chemistry, and physics) with advanced courses in food chemistry, microbiology, food processing operations, and engineering design. Students will develop new technical competencies in food and bioprocess engineering, learn how to develop and execute a research plan and acquire skills in the application of leading edge technologies to the agri-food and biotechnology industries for food quality and food safety.

CAREER OPPORTUNITY

Food engineers use their skills to design sustainable and environmentally responsible food processes for manufacturing safe, tasty, healthy, convenient food products as consumer awareness and demand for a safe and abundant supply of food have increased. Graduates have a wide range of jobs to pursue their careers. However, the jobs are usually grouped in the following 4 categories:
  • Product development: working with food products, packaging, etc.
  • Engineering: developing the processes and machinery to make and store the food.
  • Technical management: overseeing the way the food is made, packaged and stored.
  • Hygiene and food safety.

TRANSFER OPPORTUNITIES

Students have 2 options:
Option 1:
Students study at HCMUT – Bach Khoa (HCMUT) for 4 years and get the Bachelor of Engineering in Food Technology awarded by HCMUT – Bach Khoa (HCMUT).

Option 2:
After completing 02 years at HCMUT – Bach Khoa (HCMUT), students with financial and academic eligibility may transfer to our partner universities the later 02 years to complete their study for Bachelor degree. The official bachelor degree is awarded by the partner universities.
HCMUT – Bach Khoa (HCMUT) is currently working to associate the program with our partner universities in USA and Australia. The information will be updated here soon.
