The department was established in 1992 to provide technical education in field of Food Engineering & Technology. It caters to the Technical manpower requirements at various levels by adopting a new concept of modular system in technical education with emphasis on practical training in industry.

The department has eleven (12) regular faculty members, out of which there are ten Professors, one Associate Professors, and one Assistant Professor. In the technical staff, there are five (5) regular technicians, out of which there are two senior technicians. The major goals of the department are to impart quality education in the field of Food Science, Technology and Engineering. The department has the state of art R&D facilities. The innovative process development and transfer of technology is another aim of the department. The department is also imparting time to time training to rural youth to make them self sustainable. The interaction with industries is continuously being done and the industry is given the expert advice and consultancy by the department. Various research projects have been granted to the department by various funding agencies like CSIR, AICTE, MHRD, ICAR, DST, DBT and nearby Industries. A SPWD program is also handled by the department. Apart from this, knowledge dissemination by conducting seminars, workshops and short-term courses is being done throughout the year. Recently, some faculty members have been included in the International Panel of Project Reviewers and Research Group of other countries like Portugal and USA. The Department has signed MOUs with several reputed Institutions / Universities in India.

BE (Food Technology) program is accredited twice and recently for 5 years w.e.f. 15/03/2012 by NBA, New Delhi vide File no 31-4/2010-NBA dated 04/04/2012.
