The Food Science and Technology Programme started in 1978, thanks to sponsorship by Danida. The quality of our training remains the best in the region as judged by our record.
We have revitalized the Dairy Pilot Plant with new equipments and have acquired ISO 22000:2005 certification. The Food Pilot plant is to be revitalized by 2011/2012 academic year.
The two pilot plants will be in full operational state for students to work in. The University through the department has reviewed its curriculum and will continue doing so together with stakeholders in order to ensure that it is sensitive to the labour market.
