ACADEMIC CALENDAR
2020-2021
DIPLOMA OF TECHNOLOGY/BACHELOR OF TECHNOLOGY(Food Technology)

 

The food and beverage processing sector is the second largest manufacturing industry in Canada shipping $87.8 billion worth of goods in 2008 and employing more the 256,000 people. It is a very competitive industry with manufacturers continually developing new products and updating their technology. As a result, there is a great demand for qualified graduates for a wide range of activities. They include the management of the food process itself; maintenance of the nutritional quality of food; assurance of the food quality and purity; and development of new products.

 

The Diploma of Technology/Bachelor of Technology in Food Technology addresses the human resource needs of this vast industry while meeting the desire for a Bachelor Degree in this field.
