Program Overview

IIT Guwahati is located in the strategic north-eastern region (NER) and bio-diversity hot spot of India, which is anticipated to become an economic corridor for world trade in South-east Asia. With its endemic horticultural and medicinal plant produce, the region can contribute significantly to global economy in the area of food science and technology. Considering these, the International Joint Master of Technology (M.Tech.) degree (IMD) in Food Science and Technology (FST) is being jointly offered by IIT Guwahati (July 2019 onwards, India) and GIFU University (April 2019 onwards, Japan) to nurture highly-skilled professionals in food and related industries. Fundamentals associated to Food Biochemistry, Microbiology, Processing and Engineering would be nurtured in the joint degree curriculum to enhance research design thinking and a global mindset (adaptation to different cultures and cooperation with global partners) in the enrolled students. Targeting the growth of food and related industries, the curriculum anticipates to identify solutions for a sustainable society through an optimal utilization of resources to benefit NER (India) and Tokai (Japan) regions.
