Many of the IITs are having Food Engineering Faculties - There are many more such courses that are not listed here. In addition there are specialised courses offered in Dairy Technology, Sugar Technology and fisheries Technology. Private sector Institutions are also active in providing training courses in Food Technology. Amity Institute of Food Technology in Noida offers B.Tech and M.Sc. courses in FT.
