Dairy Technology, as evident from its name is an engineering discipline which deals with the processing of milk products.
The study involves storage, packing, processing, transporting and distributing dairy products with an understanding of nutrition, biochemistry and bacteriology.  In addition to that, some physicschemistry, engineering, and economics principles are included in the Dairy Technology field, for the proper utilisation and development of milk and its products.

Dairy Technology is a highly experimental field of study where the effects of different kinds of feed are observed, the environmental conditions required for milk production are understood, and research areas are explored regarding how to prevent the damage and wastage of milk and its products.
