The Department of Agricultural Engineering (established in 2006) offers the courses that deal with the application of engineering principles and scientific technologies for sustainable food production, and all along the food production to consumption chain. The course structure and syllabus for the UG and PG programmes have been designed to create skilled and technically sound human resources to cater the engineering needs of farm mechanization, irrigation and drainage, soil and water conservation, post harvest processing of crops, value addition, renewable energy, and appropriate design and utilization of aquaculture resources. The laboratory infrastructure has been developed to impart the essential practical knowledge including the application of computers and IT for the design, simulation, modeling, remote sensing etc. Two industrial trainings form a part of the UG programme that aims to provide the industrial exposure and enhancement of technical know-how and skills. The Department is actively involved in multi-disciplinary research with projects funded by DST, UGC, MoFPI and NHB.

The Thrust Areas of Research of the Department are

Soil and Water Conservation Engineering Water Resources Development and Management
Ground Water Hydrology Rainwater Harvesting
Watershed Management Aquacultural Engineering
Farm Implements and Machinery Renewable Sources Energy and Utilization
Waste recycling and Bi-product Utilization Mechanization of Horticultural Crops
Bioprocess Engineering Food Engineering and Food Industry Management
Tea Processing Technology Climate Change and Climate Resilient Agriculture
Remote Sensing and GIS
