DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING

ABOUT

The Agricultural Engineering Department, established in the year 2001 as a specialised and special- purpose engineering application branch in the field of modern Indian agricultural operations. This is one of the high- value asset and commercially operating self-sustainable department in the Institute which approved by Department of Technical Education (DTE), Government of Maharashtra, AICTE New Delhi and affiliated to Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University, Aurangabad. It nurtures the students to become a professional agricultural and food engineers who will be addressing issues of ethical and social impacts of agricultural engineering. Department is consistently working through research & demonstration of innovative technologies of the verticals of soil-water conservation-irrigation-processing & harvesting technology for agriculture produce-farm power & mechanization-IoT-Controlled farming-food linkages to achieve the targets of doubling the farm income and standardization of living of farming dependent stakeholders and youth.

Department supports and participated in National Agriculture development programme & Sustainable agriculture programme of India. Department is having its own state-of-Art Microenterprise established in the year 2007 namely MIT-CARS (https://cars.mit.asia).MIT-CARS is one of the pioneered self-sustainable successful model among the Indian Academic & Research Institution which is recognized by Department of Agriculture, Central Pollution Control Board and accredited with NABL, ISO, OHSAS, DISR. It supports the research work of  Research scholars/scientists/teachers, ICAR  organizations, Government and private industries in the sector of Agriculture-Food-Environment-Pharma-Biotechnology-Organic farming. Department is actively involved in entrepreneurship development & mentorship programmes. It has undertaken funded research and consultancy projects from DST, BIRAC, MOFPI, and department of Agriculture. Department is having mobile soil laboratory funded by Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India which is actively working by students for extension activities in rural areas.

MESSAGE FROM HOD

Dear Students

Dear Students
Agriculture is the backbone of India and which generates direct and indirect opportunities of employment. With the recent alignment of Indian scenario i.e. “Sustainable Agriculture” is possible only through agricultural mechanization, power irrigation system, precision agriculture, value addition of products, use of renewable energy sources. Considering all these required expectations by India’s growing population hunger, we added all these technologies practically. Commercially in our four year sandwich curriculum, there are having objectives to create a great quality force i.e. “Bachelor of Technology in Agricultural Engineering and Master of Technology in Food Processing Technology” to accept such challenge.

Dr. Deepak T. Bornare
