Department of Agricultural Engineering

Faculty of Agricultural Technology


In response to local and regional demand for education and professional training,  we offered specialization namely: Agricultural Engineering (AE). Students are trained to develop, adopt and disseminate knowledge and technologies that focus on the utilization and management of biological and agricultural systems and natural resources. The AE places its emphasis on sustainable agricultural development based on a holistic understanding of agronomic , biophysical production, and Food Engineering factors, from the perspective of producer and the effects of economic and social forces on agricultural enterprises. It highlights the application of biological sciences, engineering, socio-economic policies and programs, and support services to agriculture to increase the efficiency of agricultural production systems through availability and efficient use of inputs and management of natural resources. Fieldwork and practical exercises have been inseparable from agricultural curricula at AE. At AE, we strive to comply with up-to-date methodologies and practices while making the best use of available resources. Through its professional linkages formal or informal, with private and public sectors, AE has been efficiently handling quality research activities. 


The curriculum offered by the AE program includes courses in:
