Application of engineering skills in crop production has the proven potential to enhance crop productivity. These are primarily achieved by introducing improved farm machineries in order to accomplish different farming activities which otherwise are carried out by manual labor. Farm mechanization increases crop productivity by reducing human drudgery and also by lowering the cost of production. It is therefore important that the agricultural graduates are properly trained with regards to the tools and elements of farm mechanization process. In order to achieve this, the Department of Agricultural Engineering was established in 2005 at this university. The department offers undergraduate courses covering the following aspects of agricultural engineering:

  • Farm Power and Machinery
  • Irrigation and Water Management
  • Environmental Engineering, and
  • Food Process Engineering

The department also offers postgraduate degree (MS) in Irrigation and Water Management.
