Head of Food Technology
Over the past few years, advancements in the field of food technology have been focusing on the investigation on sustainable food development. Sustainable food development has become an interesting topic due to the evergrowing need for a stable and healthy food supply. We believe that the solution to these issues lies in the utilization of local biodiversity and the application of modern food processing technologies. The Food Technology program at i3L is designed to help students acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to become future food technologists. The program provides students with hands-on laboratory training and access to an extensive industry network. Our Food Technology program makes i3L the best place to be for students who aspire to be future food innovators.
i3L has the highest proportion of class time spent on hands-on laboratory activities amongst all Food Technology programs in Indonesia. At i3L, we focus on cutting-edge food processing technologies to create value-added products for new global markets.
We connect students with our broad industry network, where classroom theory marries practical application. i3L students are able to secure internships in reputable companies and university research centers.
We strive to fulfill the need for innovation in order to answer the challenges in food production and meet Indonesia's food security needs. At i3L, we have expert capabilities and state-of the art laboratory as well as pilot plant facilities that can support the innovations in food manufacturing.

i3L has been my second home for the past 4 years. I grew personally and professionally as a food technologist, all thanks to the supportive and inspiring faculty members and lab assistants, worldwide connections with external parties, condusive learning environment, state-of-the-art facilities, and wonderful friends. Being an i3L student has been a privilege for me.
During my study at i3L, I was always encouraged by supportive faculty and staff members to explore more and grow professionally as a food technologist. They gave me unlimited support, just like a family. Being an i3L student has been a great opportunity for me because only at i3L I could learn new things without any limitations.
Being a part of i3L allows me to have an amazing journey full of many memorable experiences. Not only I was put in a fun learning process with passionate lecturers and wonderful friends, I also had full hands-on laboratory sessions, internship at a food company, international conference, as well as an opportunity to finish my thesis abroad. It had been such a pleasure!
It has been a wonderful exprience studying here at i3L. i3L has provided me with state of the art facilities to help me acquire a lot of new knowledge that may not be acquired anywhere else. All of the students and lecturers are like my second family: the amount of support I receive from them is out of this world. I believe that i3L is the right place for me to build my future.
