(Food) the program, launched 4 years ago, is running successfully with huge support from students and guardians.

Food science is the end-to-end study of food, including raw materials selection and harvesting, composition, and development, production, quality control, preservation and safety, packaging and storage end-user preparation, consumption, and sensory analysis. Food Technology is the application of food science to the selection, preservation, processing, packaging, distribution, and use of safe, nutritious, and wholesome food. Food Technology courses attract a large number of students because of its novelty as educational courses and the growing demand for food technologists in today's health-conscious world.

Padmashree International College is dedicated and committed to excelling in Research & Innovation, Knowledge Dissemination, Technology Transfer and Human Resource Development in the areas of Food Science and Technology through quality attributes, to be practiced and implemented at all levels.

Scope of Food And Technology:

The production and distribution of food is the largest and most important economic activity in the world. The health and welfare of people everywhere depend on good agricultural yields and on reliable storage, successful processing, and safe handling of all types of food. Food professionals work in many occupations including industry (manufacturing, retailing, and food service), universities and schools, government, research and development, quality assurance, and food law enforcement - but whatever their occupation, they are overriding responsible for the safety of the consumer. All these activities, and many others, create a demand for well-qualified and experienced specialists who can play their part in the complex and increasingly sophisticated food supply system.

A food technologist can get the job of a Quality Assurance Manager, Production Manager, or Research Associate in premier institutes, universities, and R & D units of different government and non-governmental organizations. A post-graduate candidate in food technology can work as a lecturer or an advisor in government colleges, inspection boards, or quality control departments. Fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) multinational companies recruit food technologists periodically for bringing about improvement in their products. You can also join various I/NGOs working in the field of post-harvest developments, food security, and nutrition. Both the private and the public sectors provide lucrative job opportunities to food technologists.

You can also pursue your research work as a scientist abroad to formulate a new product range and enhance the existing portfolio of products in various food research institutes. You can work as a sensory scientist to monitor organic properties like aroma, flavor, and more. Even companies abroad recruit food technologists to ensure and monitor the quality and hygiene of food products in their contamination and adulteration prevention units. Besides, food technologists are enjoying a number of scholarships such as Fulbright, Erasmus Mundus, NFP, ADB, MEXT, etc. every year to complete their post-graduates and doctorates in renowned Universities abroad.

Practical Training and Partnerships:

Padmashree has partnership agreements with different organizations to offer selected programs, training, and practical classes. Based on the public-private and private-private partnership approach, Padmashree has been strengthening collaboration with the national and international government and non-governmental and private institutions. Padmashree plans to work with the following institutions to facilitate teaching, research, training, and information/publication sharing:

  • Nepal Agriculture Research Council (NARC)
  • Dairy Development Corporation (DDC)
  • Department of Food Technology and Quality Control (DFTQC) 
  • Nepal Food Corporation (NFC)

The college also aims to make international tie-ups with research institutes and universities.

Based on the need of various development institutions, government and non-governmental organizations, and individuals, Padmashree has planned for conducting various short-term training courses. Training courses are designed and conducted as per the needs/demand of the concerned sectors, farming communities, agro-industries, and development workers/institutions.
