Bachelor of Science in Agriculture is four years (8 Semester) full-time undergraduate honors program offered at Karunya University, Coimbatore.
Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences has launched the School of Agriculture and Biosciences which offers programmes in Agriculture, Food, Water and Biotechnology from the academic year 2017-18. Recognizing the importance of agriculture in the country, especially in the semi-arid zone and also the limitations of seats available to pursue the professional courses in agriculture in this region, Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences has introduced these programmes.
The Institution has already linked up with the reputed institutions in Israel, such as Technion of Haifa, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Ben-Gurion University of Beer-Sheva and the Agricultural Research Organization of Israel to attract faculty and ensure exchange programmes. A Model Agriculture Station is being established in the campus with the technical support of Dr. AvriZur, the former Agricultural Scientist attached to the Israeli Embassy in India to help in academic, research, demonstration and extension programmed of the proposed School.
The Research Station intended to help in introducing precision agriculture in the region will make use of modem tools like Internet of Things (IoT), Data Knowhow, Digital Media, Remote Sensing and GIS in the farming sector. Precision farming will be practiced both in poly-houses and open field. ‘Technology of Tomorrow’ and ‘Interdisciplinary research’ are the keywords of this initiative. The school has research and education programmes in Agriculture, Horticulture, Agricultural Engineering, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics and Food Processing & Engineering.
The candidate should have passed Intermediate/ 10 + 2 with PCM/ PCB/ PCMB / Agriculture (P Physics, C - Chemistry, M - Mathematics, B - Biology) with 55% of marks from a recognized Board/ University.
