SCHOOL OF AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES
Agriculture industry plays an important role in India as it provides employment to the major section of the Indian population. Earlier, farmers were using primitive methods in cultivation, irrigation and farming, but these methods were not giving fruitful results. The government of India then decided to use the experts’ knowledge in order to improve the productivity of this industry.Agricultural engineering is the branch of engineering that applied engineering science disciplines and technology practices to the efficient production and processing of food, feed and fiber. This course is made after merging the principles of plant biology, mechanical and civil engineering.
The curriculum for a bachelor’s degree in agricultural engineering will generally have a focus on the technology used in agricultural processes. Several topics covered in programs like these include power and machinery systems, storage, ventilation, and cooling systems, product processing, spraying techniques, irrigation and drainage management and agribusiness. In addition to studying these topics, students may also be expected to complete a capstone project in their senior year, where they work on practical design projects with faculty or cooperating industry members.
