Agricultural Engineering

The Department of Agricultural Engineering was started in the year 2020 to offer a Bachelor of Engineering in Agriculture Engineering. The Department offers a 4-year B.E. Degree course in Agricultural Engineering. The syllabi and course structure are as per the guidelines of Anna University. The Agricultural Engineering department was established in 2020 with an intake of 30 students. Agricultural Engineering in the area of engineering is concerned with the Design, Construction, and Improvement of Farming Equipment and Machinery. Agricultural Engineers integrate technology with farming and use the latest technology to meet the challenges of environmental issues and activities. Students are provided the opportunity to have hands-on experience regarding Machine components and equipment, testing agricultural machinery to ensure safety and performance, and providing exposure to water and environmental concerns.

Hands-on training on crop production using tractor-operated farm implements is offered in the field. Our Students are undergoing internships and training in Farm machinery manufacturing industries, Drip irrigation manufacturing companies, Food processing Industries, Dairies, Renewable energy industries, etc. The Department intends to facilitate technical support to Farmers and Entrepreneurs to establish small-scale industries. The Department has signed MOUs with Agricultural allied industries through which Students get Placements, good packages in companies like Taark Equipments Private Limited, Pollachi.

The Agriculture Engineering department aims to produce well informed technocrats, who will be able to integrate engineering and technology inventions with farming and contribute towards sustainable growth in agriculture production across the globe.

M1: To prepare the students with in depth Engineering knowledge and skills so as to face the challenges in Agriculture namely Farm Mechanization, Soil and Water Conservation, Agricultural Processing and Post harvest value addition, Bio Energy utilization and Precision farming and prove their prowess and expertise as Agriculture Engineers.

M2: To equip the graduates to meet global challenges in agricultural growth.

M3: To create ample opportunity to interact with industries and institutions and sign MOU’s for mutual benefits.
