Poojasree K M: B.SC. FSM 2013-2016: I’ve always aspired to become a food entrepreneur and that was the rationale behind my choice to take up Food Science and Management. The course offered a perfect balance between the science behind food and the skills needed to market it. It was the whole kit and caboodle for my aspirations. We were introduced to many aspects of food as a product such as Food Microbiology, Food Packaging, Food Management etc. Alongside the core topics, we also got the opportunity to hone our skills in baking, business model developmentand personality development amongst the many others. After my graduation, I learnt more extensively about baking and it would be safe to say that because I had the food science foundation, I better understood the ingredients and there working in the recipe which affects the final product. This knowledge helped me in tweaking the recipes for new inventions. I would highly recommend the course to anyone who wishes to choose food line as their career option.
Swarnalakshmi: B.SC.FSM 2015 – 2018: The teaching method was very good and the teachers made sure that we understood the topic, and also took the time and effort to clear our doubts. Additionally, Beyond Breads – An initiative to develop the students Entrepreneurship skills, was undertaken so that we as students got to know the planning and financial tactics involved in making and selling a product. We had the opportunity to participate in various national level seminars and competitions. The college and the department always made sure the students are engaged with activities and events at all times. The exposure they gave me will always help me in my future endeavours. I was placed in one of the top company during the campus placements which wouldn’t have been possible without my department. Thanks to my department and M.O.P. for making education fun and valuable.
Srikala Kumar: B.SC.FSM 2014 – 2017:A Bachelor’s degree in Food science and Management at the School of Food Science had helped me to gain an understanding of the disciplines involved in the food industry. Not just coursework, but some of the practical experiences such as internship and research project had helped me to develop the skills necessary for the workplace. By the end of the degree, I was confident in pursuing higher studies in the same field. I am glad that I had chosen to study here.
