The Department of Agricultural Engineering commenced from the academic year 2019-20 with a vision to mould our students as a strong professional engineers, since agriculture is the backbone of our nation. The Department is established to develop water resource system. Our department is equipped with state-of-the art laboratory facilities with highly qualified members of faculty. The department offers B.Tech. Agricultural Engineering, focusing on enhancing the practical knowledge of the students, thus professionals with the knowledge of modern farming and irrigation and encouraging them to solve different practical difficulties in small-landholdings. Our Department is spreading its wing by establishing various laboratories like Farm Machinery and Power, Agro-meteorological Observatory, Irrigation Field Laboratory, Food Process Engineering Lab, Soil and Water Conservation Engineering Lab, Agricultural Processing Lab, Bio-energy Lab, Post Harvest Engineering Lab etc in order to meet the requirements of the Degree Program. To provide adequate farming skill as a background for Agricultural Engineers, 5 acre farm land is allotted for Crop Husbandry Lab. Students are being trained in crop cultivation techniques from land preparation to harvesting of crops like wet land crop and Irrigated Dry land crops. The various software for Mapping, modeling and analysis in CAD, GIS and remote sensing are being equipped in the department MoUs with various industries such as Agricultural Machinery and Irrigation are signed to empower students through on-site training programs and internship. In order to bridge the gap between the industrial practices and academics, a higher level of exposure to the industries are given to the students there by enabling them to be successful social entrepreneurs.
To train and empower the students towards Agricultural Engineering profession with a wealth of knowledge and function effectively in disciplines like agricultural machinery and automated machine systems, soil conservation, irrigation and drainage, crop nutrient and fustigation, postharvest handling and value addition, farm animals and housing etc. for the efficient production and processing of food, feed, fibre and fuels.
- To develop skills on the various aspects of Agricultural Engineering to make graduates become into entrepreneurs, scientists, academicians and technologists for sustained food production to meet the ever-increasing population’s food needs.
- To strengthen the research activities are in Agricultural Engineering by proposing innovative and application-oriented projects for the development of agriculture and allied sectors.
- To establish the necessary infrastructure to meet the industrial, and Development needs.
- B.Tech. – Agricultural Engineering
