Food Technology is an application of food sciences that involves the selection, preservation, processing and packaging of food products based upon food chemistry, biology, and engineering principles. Development of food safety and food quality systems are at the heart of food technology programs.

This program assists students with a strong comprehension of all aspects of food processing and food product development that are aligned with the latest processing and analytical techniques. Moreover, this food technology program is designed to provide the latest knowledge about novel functional foods, sensory evaluation techniques, and current food laws and regulations.

"Additionally, our program is the first undergraduate program in Pakistan to receive accreditation from the internationally-acclaimed Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), in a short time span of just 6 years. Moreover, we are the first institute in South Asia, and among only a handful of Asian institutes (19 in total) to be recognized as such. Overall, only 44 international institutions have received this recognition for their undergraduate programs so far."
