Food Processing and Technology is a good branch of Engineering. It is not very popular among 12th Science students. When compared to other branches of Engineering, Food Processing and Technology has lesser number of takers. But this has ensured that this branch has remained very less saturated. After Graduation, finding a decent job for Food Processing and Technology graduates won’t be a very difficult task. Also, due to the technological advancements that the Food production Industry has been going through, there is a huge demand for professionals who are skilled in Food processing and technology. Along with the Graduation Degree, if one manages to pursue a Post Graduate Degree, it will help enhance his/her value in the job market! In this article, I will list some of the best PG (M Tech) programs available, which are related to the field of Food processing.
