DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING

 
AUTOMOBILE ENGINEERING AUTOMOBILE ENGINEERING AUTOMOBILE ENGINEERING

Department of Agricultural Engineering, being established in 2015, offers 4 years BE- Agricultural Engineering course. The department has strong academic background with highly qualified faculty. The department offers hands-on training for students from first year onwards on latest machineries at the fully mechanized Bannari Amman model farm of 100 acres where micro nutrients & biocompost are also produced.

Vision

To train and produce an Agricultural Engineer 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 fertigation, postharvest handling and value addition, farm animals and housing etc. for the efficient production and processing of food, feed, fiber and fuels.

Mission

To achieve excellence in the curriculum planning pertaining to agricultural engineering by periodical updation in order to develop the students with sound technical   knowledge.

To strengthen the research activities 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 R and D needs.

To  develop  skills   on  the  various  aspects   of  agricultural  engineering to  make  graduates  blossom into entrepreneurs, scientists, academicians  and  technologists for sustained food production so as to meet the ever increasing population’s food needs.
