Humans require it to build and repair tissues and to keep the body in a good working condition, it acts as a fuel for energy. Food technology is an important source of foreign exchange earnings and stimulates growth in other sectors as the ongoing advanced technical advancemFSTs in food science are used to enhanced the quality and growing rate of food.
DepartmFST of Food Science and Technology started the bachelor degree program in 2022. At the beginning this departmFST started with laboratory facilities provided by the collaboration with the Agriculture Research Institute (ARI), Mingora Swat. Highly qualified faculty and other staff members are providing their services to the departmFST.
The aim of the Food Science and Technology is to provide quality education and its application in handling, processing and preservation of food for life. It provide cutting edge techniques to overcome global challenges in food safety and security.
