Food Engineering, an Integral Component of Food Science: Current and Future Trends

Food engineering as an integral component of Food Science has historically delivered quality research on topics focused on process modeling and experimentation, process automation, measurement and predictions of properties, and integration of transport processes with kinetics, relating to quality, nutrition, health, and safety (modeling and experimentation).  Lately, food engineers significantly contributed to nanoscale food engineering and technology and also focused on system engineering approaches.

This webcast explores the paths created over the years in food engineering and focus on the current happenings and future direction of as a critical component of the food science and technology in the food industry.
