Course Objectives: 
To familiarize the students with both the theory behind a variety of food engineering operations while also showing them how the actual systems operate either in a lab environment or in a real factory setting. To encourage the students to develop an ability to solve a problem or design an equipment, its components or a system by creative thinking. To teach the students how to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice. To encourage students to develop an ability to conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data. To promote team work and written presentations in the form of detailed reports.
Course Content: 

The course will be composed of equal parts theory and application. Every  other week, the students will have a chance to carry out an experiment on a food engineering operation system (in a lab scale equipment), after which they will be assigned a case study regarding that operation. Within the following weeks, they are expected to work in groups to come up with their original solution and submit their proposed design in a detailed report format. Most of the design parameters that the case requires, will be left to the students to choose. Making sure they consider the ethical responsibilites that an engineer should possess towards the society and the environment, the students are free to come up with their own original solution. They will then be evaluated considering the technical knowledge they demonstrate, the accuracy of calculations,  the creativity of the design, the quality of the reports as well as the ethical responsibility they demonstrate.
