General introduction

Food Technology is a program which provides fundamental and specialized knowledge of Food Technology field, helping students to be able to organize, schedule production plans, manage production activities,manufacture and handle the techniques and technology of food-manufacturing factories; analyze and assess physiochemical, micro, and biochemical criteria of food products; construct experimenal models, inspect food hygiene; have knowledge about research methods, set up projects, manage and control the projects related to the Food Technology field.

Students have chance to apply learnt knowledge into practicing sessions, job training at laboratories, practical workshops at the university; visiting tours, practical visits,  production internship terms, job training at food manufacturing factories; students are also authorized to register for participating in start-up programs, food-product business initiatives, student scientific researches and research and technology transfer projects implemented by the university lecturers and domestic and overseas collaborators.

During the final year of the studying program, students can register for graduation internship terms which are conducted domestically or overseas at food manufacturing factories, research institutes, universities in the field of food technology for 6 months.

Furthermore, graduated students from the Advanced Educarion Program are ensured with enhanced English skills as the studying program is conducted completely in English. Students also have a lot of opportunities to experience an international environment with numerous students from various countries such as Australia, France, Korea, Philippines, Indonesia, etc. Annually, approximately 30% of the students achieve the chance to take short-term exchange programs for studying at universities worldwide. 100% of students who wish to do internship in other countries are introduced to factories, universities, and institutes which suit their needs.

The teaching staff at the Advanced Education Program, particularly in the Food Technology program, have all accomplished PhD, Master degrees in developed countries. They are also qualified in their fields as well as the foreign language (English). Approximately 30% of all lecturers teaching in Food Technology program are professors, doctors from plenty of universities worldwide such as in America, Australia, Japan, and Taiwan.
