In the sixties, the world was experiencing the wave of ‘green revolution’ entailed with a serious demand for extending science and technology in the fields of agriculture and preservation of food. To keep abreast with the needs of the day, Jadavpur University established the Department of Food Technology and Bio-Chem. Engineering in the year 1964.

To begin with the department provided only the B. Tech course whereas the M.Tech course was initiated 3 years later. Biochemical Engineering is very significant area of study. The food industry which play significant role in the production and marketing of agricultural products is based on organic living materials. This makes increased demands on the resources of the department, which it has tried to mobilise. The department provides modernized facilities freezing, canning, extrusion, preservation by fermentation, fermentative production of enzymes, chemicals and antibiotics, processing of cereals, legume and oil seeds. To cope up with the latest developments, the department maintains contact with both national and international agencies and research.
