Unit Code: FIS704

Unit Title: Food Engineering & Lab

This Unit delivers different engineering principles including mass equilibria, energy balances, thermodynamics, heat, and mass transfer. The topics presented are designed to build students’ capacity in various applications of engineering concepts throughout the course of handling, processing, storage, packaging and distribution of food products. Topics in this Unit include descriptions of the processes, engineering theories, and sample problems, aimed at helping students get the feel of real-life situations. The Unit, thus, ranges from basic engineering principles founded in fundamental physics, to several applications in food processing.
