About College

The Anand Agricultural University (AAU) is located in the town by the same name in Gujarat state. It was earlier a part of the Gujarat Agricultural University which was set up back in 1938. Then it was the Anand campus of the Gujarat Agricultural University, before becoming a separate entity in 2004. The AAU now has three constituent colleges, for the three different fields of veterinary science, agriculture and animal husbandry & dairy sciences. The jurisdiction of the AAU covers six districts in Gujarat namely- Anand, Panchmahal, Kheda, Dahod, Vadodara and Ahmedabad. 

Constituent colleges and centres are found across the state in cities such as Dahod, Godhara, Anand and Vadodara. Some of these colleges include- Bansilal Amritlal College of Agriculture (Anand), Sheth MC College of Dairy Science (Anand), College of Horticulture (Anand), College of Agricultural Engineering & Technology (Godhara) and the College of Agriculture in the town of Jabuagm. There are also some attached polytechnics to provide vocational training to personnel. Fields such as horticulture, agricultural engineering and food science & home economics are dealt with by them. 

The AAU also runs several off-campus extension education centres all over Gujarat. Examples of this include- School of Baking (Anand), Sardar Smruti Kendra (Anand), Krishi Vigyan Kendra (Dahod), Pashu Vigyan Kendra (Limkheda), Transfer of Technology Centre (Anand), Poultry Training Centre (Anand), Farm Technology Training Centre (Nenpur) and the Tribal Research cum Training Centre at Devagahdbaria among several others as well. For research purposes too, the AAU collaborates with several other players to develop solutions for its mandated areas. Some of these prominent players include- the Main Maize Research Centre in Godhara, the Regional Cotton Research Centre in Viramgam, Pulse Research Station in Vadodara, Paddy Research Station in Dabhoi and the Narmada Irrigation Research Station in Minawada. The overall purpose of the institute is to develop solutions for rural folk, usually dairy farmers which are innovative and scalable. 

All this has helped the AAU secure extremely high ranks across ranking platforms. Its best performance may well be reflected in the NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) conducted by the union central government. Here, it secured 83rd rank among all the universities in India and within the 101-150 band overall. Admissions to the polytechnic courses are not directly dependent on academic performance as they are meant for job creation and skilling. For the formal academic programmes, admissions is based on performance in the entrance examinations and on the merit of previous examinations given at school or college. The fee for all courses here is extremely nominal. Another area by which the AAU excels in is through its internal publications. On purpose, these are printed in Gujarati, to be useful to the rural people and dairy farmers who will be reading the material. It includes better farm methods as well as the use of simple technology to ease processes. Much input is paid on storage techniques. Periodic newsletters are also published and then disbursed to the industry. The industry too gains vital research inputs in this manner.
