VISION & MISSION OF THE DEPARTMENT

Vision

The main aim of Agriculture engineering department is to serve the country by providing quality technocrats who will be able to integrate engineering and technology interventions with farming and contribute towards sustainable growth in agricultural production across globe, To produce world class professionals who are equipped to meet the demands of global outfit, have analytical abilities and entrepreneurship for making career of self-employment and as contributors to livelihood and food/nutritional security.


Mission

To be a centre of excellence in teaching, research and extension education in the disciplines of agricultural engineering so as to promote mechanization-processing and value addition and reduce drudgery in agricultural operations and losses in post-harvest management in agricultural field through effective use of available natural resources.

M1 : To promote graduate student learning in agricultural engineering.

M2 : To discover and improve new technologies for all stakeholders.

M3 : To provide engineering and technology expertise in the fields of agriculture, industry, for the state, nation, and world.


The Program Educational Objectives of the Agriculture engineering are:

PEO1: To provide students with a comprehensive knowledge in mathematical, scientific and agricultural engineering fundamentals to solve the engineering and farmers related problems and also to pursue higher studies.

PEO2: To provide graduates the background and necessary perspective to pursue higher education. They should be able to work competitively in related fields over the spectrum of Irrigation Industries, Watershed Management Organizations, Tractor and Farm Implement Companies, Food Processing Industries, Seed and Fertilizer Companies, Energy and Renewable Energy field, NGOs and Government Organizations.

PEO3: To provide exposure of new cutting edge technologies to the students and to motivate them to take up new challenges to solve the problems faced by society and nation through research, entrepreneurship and skill development.

The following are the Program Specific Outcomes of Engineering Graduate:
