SGIDT Department of Dairy Engineering

SGIDT Department of Dairy Engineering


The department of dairy Engineering is one of the constituent units of the institute. It has wide scope in development of machinery, equipment and technologies for assisting the manufacture of wide range of milk and milk products. The department has goals of conducting teaching, research and extension in the fields of dairy and food process engineering, energy conservation and applied fields and to provide training for entrepreneurs and skill development programs. Department of Dairy Engineering is the heart of the course. The unit operations required in value addition and energy conservation methods are employed looking into the environment friendly technologies in view. It is also equipped with condensing and spray drying models and has very close to it, a Feeder and Balancing dairy of PDP, Patna for practical classes on running plants.
