The Department of Agricultural Engineering was established in the year 2017. The department emphasizes towards imparting quality education, rigorous teaching-learning. Here the students are exposed to wide range of topic within the field. Agricultural engineering covers various topics such as Soil & Water conservation, Irrigation and Drainage, Farm Machinery and Power, Post-harvest Processing, Farm Buildings & Storage etc. This course incorporates new technologies in the field of Agricultural Engineering.
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.
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.
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.
The following are the Program Specific Outcomes of Engineering Graduate:PSO1: Identify and design sustainable solutions to solve agricultural engineering problems applying the knowledge of basic and engineering sciences.
