Food and Biochemical Engineering
Food and Biochemical Engineering is a branch of chemical engineering or food science which applies technological advancements to biological materials. They are combined knowledge of biology, chemistry and engineering to create products from raw materials and develop the processes for achieving this. Engineers can work in the food, drinks and biotechnology sectors. These specialist engineers focus on production and food processing systems. They can design food production and food processing systems. They also find solutions to problems which occur when materials and processes interact with the environment.
