Processing technology focuses on formulating and knowing how to formulate processed products. Processing is relevant to food technology, biotechnology, chemical technology and agricultural technologies. Students develop understanding and skill in the combining of materials/ingredients to formulate a new product.
The components of Processing Technologies are:
Implement a process
Implement a process focuses on undertaking appropriate procedures to process a specified product. Products may include but are not limited to: fermented or non-fermented foods and beverages; biologically active products; household chemicals; toiletries; cosmetics; paper; resin or fibreglass products.
Knowledge of processing
Knowledge of processing focuses on the underpinning concepts associated with processing.
Knowledge of Product Preservation, Packaging and Storage
Product preservation, packaging and storage focuses on the ways in which products can be treated during and after their development in order to maintain their integrity over time by inhibiting internal degradation and/or protecting them from external damage.
