Food manufacturing require engineering?
Some people might think that engineering only related in building skyscrappers, residentials, piping system and designing modern gadgets and technology
They are wrong!!!
Factually, food manufacturing industries apply many types of engineering as detail as engineering in other scope
Food engineering is a multidisciplinary field which combines microbiology, applied physical sciences, chemistry and engineering for food and related industries
Food engineering includes, but is not limited to, the application of agricultural engineering, mechanical engineering and chemical engineering principles to food materials
Food engineers provide the technological knowledge transfer essential to the cost-effective production and commercialization of food products and services
Physics, chemistry, and mathematics are fundamental to understanding and engineering products and operations in the food industry.
Food engineering encompasses a wide range of activities as food engineers are employed in food processing, food machinery, packaging, ingredient manufacturing, instrumentation and control
Firms that design and build food processing plants, consulting firms, government agencies, pharmaceutical companies, and health-care firms also employ food engineers
Specific food engineering activities include:
- (drug/food) products
- design and installation of (food/biological/pharmaceutical) production processes
- marketing and technical support for manufacturing plants
- design and operation of environmentally responsible waste treatment systems
