At present, programs of diverse natures are being run in this campus. Hence it would be appropriate to state the objectives carried by each program.

Objectives of B. Sc. Programs

  1. To upgrade the quality of the B. Sc. program so that T.U. science graduates can compete academically with the graduates from other Asian countries
  2. To broaden the intellectual horizon of the students
  3. To make the B. Sc. program more practical and relevant to the professional needs of national development, and
  4. To provide the students with in-depth knowledge in the area of specialization

Objectives of B. Tech. Food Technology Program

  1. To provide knowledge in food science and the principles underlying food processing
  2. To give wider knowledge to students in advanced food engineering
  3. To acquaint students with industrial management practices, and
  4. To train the students in product specific specialization areas.

Objectives of M. Tech. Food Technology Program

  1. To provide the students advanced knowledge in food science and the principles underlying food processing technology
  2. To give wider knowledge to students in advanced food engineering including computerized process control and plant automation
  3. To acquaint students with the recent industrial management practices including quality management
  4. To train the students in product specific specialization areas
  5. To develop research skill in students to make them capable of carrying out research work independently
  6. To provide students competitive knowledge in food technology, comparable to foreign universities.

Objectives of B. Sc. in Nutrition & Dietetics

There is prevalence of malnutrition in most of the developing countries, including Nepal. It is the responsibility of the nation to combat it. In this regard, National Planning Commission prioritized a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition & Dietetics (B.Sc.ND) to address this problem in 2006. As such, the field of nutrition and dietetics is dedicated to protecting health and saving lives by deploying knowledge and expertise in the field. Hence, objectives of the program are: 

  1. To produce graduates with recognized clinical, public health and management skills. 
  2. To produce graduates competent enough to work as nutritionist and dietitian in the hospital setting and other specialized areas such as community and public health, and food industry sector.
