The B.Tech (Food Process Engineering) students are always encouraged to pioneer new initiatives to nurture creativity, develop leadership and share technical knowledge among the building engineers.

This began with a technical symposium titled “Food Xplore” in 2000, which served as a platform for the students nationwide to stage their innovations. As the country is in threshold of leaping into major breakthroughs in the area of post-harvest technology and food processing, we believe in our efforts to continue the food exploration.

FOOD XPLORE paves the way for creating young innovations that lead to future food engineers,entrepreneurs, scientists and technologists. This symposium is a tributary where all young foodbrains meet and new innovations and ideas are given life.

Many competitions like Drawing, Spell bee, Fictional writing for school students, oral paper presentations, poster presentations, quiz are also conducted and new ideas are replenished.
