The course consists of basic preparation of food technologists in the application of process engineering in the management and control of the food production and biotechnology industries. It builds on previous general subjects Chemical Engineering and Physical Chemistry and extends them in areas that are characteristic of food production and biotechnology. The course provides information not only for the study of their own technology, but as for the packaging and storage of food and for the study of changes in nutritional value during processing of food products. Special emphasis is given to a promising new processes and trends that are introduced into the food technology.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Fialová Jana (19.12.2017)

Students will be able to:

Manage and control food processes from the point of view of energy consumption, environmental impact, minimizing damage to materials, minimizing the effect on the nutritional value of the product during processing

Find the right solution for greater appreciation of raw materials, ie the selection of separation and isolation processes for obtaining biologically and nutritionally valuable substances from raw materials and intermediate food products

Be able to evaluate and select appropriate technological process or procedure for treatment or obtaining materials with desired biological effects, design and calculate the appropriate conditions for subsequent storage and distribution processes

Basic knowledge and overview of modern and prospective processes in food and biotechnological productions.
