Food Engineering Systems

This course introduces students to the application of fundamental and advanced chemical engineering fundamentals applied to food processing systems. Students analyze and design food engineering processes. The basic and advanced chemistry and biochemistry required for an in-depth understanding of food systems is presented. Basic principles of mass transfer, heat transfer, fluid flow, chemical reaction, process control, and mixing are used to analyze or design food production systems. Computer simulations will be used for the design of food processing systems. Laboratory experiments and demonstrations will be integrated throughout the course.
