About Department

Advances in engineering have been central to human progress ever since the invention of the wheel. In the past hundred and fifty years in particular, engineering and technology have transformed the world we live in, contributing to significantly longer life expectancy and enhanced quality of life for large numbers of the country’s population. The critical roles of engineering in addressing the large-scale pressing challenges facing our societies worldwide are widely recognized. Such large-scale challenges include access to affordable food security, tackling the coupled issues of energy, transportation and climate change; clean drinking water; natural and man-made disaster mitigation, environmental protection and natural resource management, reducing food losses through value addition, mechanized farming, among numerous others. As such, mobilizing the engineering community to become more effective in delivering real products and services of benefit to tribal farmers of the state the Parul University established the College of Agricultural Engineering.

The Department of Agricultural Engineering was established in the year 2015. The aim of the programme is to undertake and promote state of art technology and formal education in Agricultural Engineering. Department enables the students to realize their greatest potential in terms of their contribution for the betterment of the individual, society, nation and the world as a whole.

Agricultural Engineering plays a very important role in increasing production and productivity of agricultural crops, thereby, increasing the income of farmers. Also, timeliness of farm operation through efficient agricultural implements and machinery as well as appropriate land and water management activities along with efficient post-harvest technology and processing as well as efficient energy utilization are the important areas in which Agricultural Engineering profession has been playing major role.
