Department of Agriculture Engineering, established in 2015, offers 4 years BE- Agriculture Engineering course. This department is equipped with state of the art laboratory facilities with highly qualified Members of Faculty. Department has a fully mechanized farm and exclusive machinery training centre which comprises of 4 Wheel Drive Tractor Cut- Section and individual component cut sections. Department has fully modernized Irrigation/Drainage Laboratory, Groundwater Laboratory and GIS Laboratory with latest Soil Water Modeling Software. Fully centralized on-field irrigation system gives the option of using different irrigation systems. Agricultural processing laboratory has been built to serve the demands of teaching and research on the Processing Technology of agriculture produces. To impart the knowledge on crop cultivation aspects from seed to harvest, the department has a 10 acres farm along with well-equipped soil science, agriculture metrology and crop husbandry labs. A fully automated polyhouse in the department enables the students to learn cultivation practices under controlled environment. The department offers hands-on training for students from first year onwards on latest agricultural engineering technologies.
