COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course objectives

The aim of the course is to introduce the students with technological processes in the manufacture of bakery products, as well as with physical, chemical and nutritional properties of raw materials and final products. The knowledge that students acquire in this course will enable them to independently solve engineering problems related to the production of cereals and other bakery products.

Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course

 

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes)

After completing the course, students will be able to:
- independently analyze the composition of cereals, and know the properties and role of particular constituents, evaluate quality parameters of milled products,
- explain the changes that occur during the cereals processing,
- have knowledge for indepent selection of raw materials for the production of certain products as well for new product development,
- analyze and explain the changes that occur during the processing
- organize the work and independently conduct the production of bakery products, pastas and others products from cereals,
- implement the legal framework, using scientific and professional literature for the purpose of lifelong learning.
