A graduate programme of Dairy Technology was started in the erstwhile University of Udaipur in the year 1978 in Rajasthan College of Agriculture, which led to the establishment later on in 1982 into a separate College and Faculty of Dairy Science in the University. Since then the College has undergone various changes in the academic programmes and development of physical facilities. The College has five departments namely, Department of Dairy and Food Technology, Dairy and Food Management and Economics, Department of Dairy & Food Engineering, Chemistry and Microbiology. The product of the college after completing the programme are getting employment in the Dairy & Food Processing industries within and outside state.
On account of the fast development in the processing the packaging industry the requirement of processed foods has increased tremendously for the society for domestic consumption as well as for export. Hence, a need had arisen to diversify the academic activities of the existing College of Dairy Science by initiating a graduate programme in Food Processing so as to provide competent technical manpower to the fast developing industry. Keeping this in view, the Strategic Development Project of the Rajasthan Agricultural University accepted the suggestions of the college and consequently recommended the widening of the scope of the present Dairy Science College of by converting into College of Dairy & Food Science Technology.
