Dairy Science and Technology

Dairy husbandry is one of the strategic sectors of agriculture that has a major impact on public health, the environment and economy. Dairy science and technology provides knowledge and expertise on the production of highly nutritious and safe milk and dairy products in a sustainable manner.

Dairy technology is the branch of engineering which explores milk & milk products processing. Dairy technology is a division of engineering that deals with the processing of milk and its products. Dairy technology study involves processing, storage, packaging, distribution and transportation of dairy products by implying the science of bacteriology, nutrition and biochemistry. Working alongside dairy scientists, dairy engineers and farm managers, you're the bacteria problem-solver of the group. You may specialize in one particular area of dairy production such as milk handling and processing, or even one product like sour cream.
