From the Desk of Head
I would like to welcome you to the Department of Food Engineering at Dhaka University of Engineering & Technology, Gazipur. Our department has been dedicated to providing high-quality education and research opportunities in the field of food engineering since its inception in 2017.
Currently this department is offering undergraduate degree named ‘Bachelor of Science in Food Engineering’. Moreover, postgraduate programs are to be offered soon. Our courses have been developed with the combination of conventional as well as novel concepts of food engineering education, to ensure that our graduates play leading roles in the development and improvement of various food and allied industries globally.
Our academic and research activities focus on the frontier areas of food sector, such as food processing and preservation, post-harvest operations, health oriented nutrition, food safety and quality management, transport process and kinetics, product development and ingredients innovation, food packaging and storage systems, process control and optimization, computer-aided designs and manufacturing systems.
Our department possesses required numbers of fully equipped laboratories, namely the Food Analysis Laboratory, Food Processing and Packaging Laboratory, Food Microbiology and Safety Laboratory etc. To boost high-quality research activities, these laboratories have been provided with sophisticated instruments, including UPLC, spectrophotometer, colorimeter, bomb-calorimeter, advanced microscopes, real-time PCR, automatic titrator and so on.
The strength of our department lies in its
diversity and interdisciplinary nature of faculty members, staff and
infrastructure. I invite you to peruse our web page and learn more about our
