Food Engineering Program ITB is a cognate engineering Program with the Chemical Engineering Program ITB. Starting in 2003 as a Food Technology sub study program at the Chemical Engineering Program of ITB, now the Food Engineering Program of ITB is to be developed to participate in tackling national bio-based economy issues and preparing the nation to face global competition. Expected the experts are not only to be competent in the field of technology, but able to innovate in post-harvest system renewal that is globally competitive and follows scientific developments in the international world.

The Food Engineering Program of ITB aims to produce human resources that have knowledge, skills and abilities in the field of food processing technology, so that they can formulate problems related to food processing and processing on an industrial scale and find solutions, can create innovations in the industrial sector of post-harvest agricultural products, especially Indonesian food counterparts, and can bring Indonesia towards the Bio-Base Economy system, which is an economy based on new and renewable biological materials.
