Dairy Technology

Dairy Technology is a component of food technology and processing industry. B.Tech course in Dairy Technology equips with techniques related to processing of various milk products. Students also get to know about quality control and learn to work with dairy processing equipment. Apart from the role of dairy scientists who analyze production aspects, successful graduates also get to work in quality control departments of milk plants, ice cream units and so on. 
 
Dairy technology study involves processing, storage, packaging, distribution and transportation of dairy products by implying the science of bacteriology, nutrition and biochemistry. Apart from that, some principles of physics, engineering, economics and chemistry are also incorporated in the field of dairy technology, in order to develop the appropriate utilization of milk and their products. The main occupations are production and processing. Production process involves collecting of milk, reproduction of high yielding cattle’s and taking care of the animals. Processing includes managing of milk for supply or its alteration into dairy products. After the milk reaches the plant, processing work begins and it is converted into a variety of dairy products.
