Dear student,

Food Science is the study of the physical, biological, and chemical makeup of food; and the concepts underlying food processing. On the other hand, Food Technology is a branch of food science that deals with the production processes that make foods. Early scientific research into food technology concentrated on food preservation.  

Having said that you should know that Food Technology is a B. Tech course, while Food Science is a B. Sc course. So ultimately, what is comes down to is your educational background and your interest in the subject. For your understanding, please go through the difference between Food Technology & Food Science so that you can make an informed decision. Good luck!
