Agriculture is the root of our livelihood as the cultivation of soil not only results in the yielding of crops, it provides food to the animals also. In wake of the various technological advancements that are taking place in the sector, agricultural and food engineering has come to acquire a great deal of importance. Under the programme, the students would get to study as to how to develop technology that could be effectively used in the sphere of land resource planning, crop production, irrigation, dairy engineering. Meanwhile, the food engineers would be engaged in production, processing, packaging, safety and/or transportation of the world’s food supply. They would also get an opportunity to study about food refrigeration, freezing, thermal processing, drying, and other food operations
Students having Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and/or Biology in their 10+2 are eligible for the entrance examinations that are conducted for admission to B.E./B.Tech programs in agricultural engineering.
The demand for agricultural and food engineers is expected to grow at the rate of 4% from 2014 to 2024. The need to protect our environment, combat climate change, and global warming, increase agriculture production will surely go a long way in absorbing this new workforce. Those having completed their Bachelor's and Master's degree in Agricultural and Food Engineering will have an opportunity to work in various government departments at the state level. The Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) has planned to set up ten more Central Institute of Agricultural Engineering (CIAE) with an aim to expedite the level of pre and post-agricultural mechanization. The ICAR is also mulling to establish 200 Farm Machinery Operation cum Maintenance Training Centres with an aim to empower the youth and give thrust to entrepreneurship.
