COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING
The Agricultural Engineering discipline aims to support the agriculture section in developing its agricultural production in a wider prospective. The College of Agricultural Engineering (CAE) came into existence under the Rajendra Agricultural University on 7th Dec. 1983 to give the much needed impetus for agricultural development in the state through education, research and transfer of technologies related to agricultural engineering. The College of Agricultural Engineering is producing good number of trained agricultural engineers to support and maintain the pace of agricultural development in the state.
The college has three main functions : teaching, research and extension and thus the College has a good set up for teaching and research.
The major area of teaching and research in the field of agricultural engineering discipline has taken the shape of department in the College of Agricultural Engineering, Pusa. The college has following five departments.
- Farm Machinery
- Irrigation & Drainage Engineering
- Processing & Food Engineering
- Farm Power & Renewable Energy
- Soil & Water Conservation Engineering
The College of Agricultural Engineering, Pusa offers B.Tech. (Agricultural Engineering) degree programme of four years duration and M. Tech. degree programme of two years duration in three disciplines viz; Farm Machinery and Power Engineering, Soil and Water Engineering and Processing & Food Engineering. The college follows a nationally accepted syllabus approved by ICAR both at UG and PG levels.
The students get opportunity to develop skill on software development through Spoken-Tutorial (an initiative of IIT Bombay as part of National Mission on Education through Information & Communication Technology).
Admission in B. Tech(Ag. Engg) programme is done through competitive examination conducted by BCECEB, Patna; whereas for admission in M. Tech programme, competitive examination is conducted by university itself. For details related to admission procedure, availability of seats, eligibility criteria and reservation policy click here.

Training on post harvest primary processing and value addition
The Department of Processing & Food Engineering under AICRP on Post Harvest Technology conducted one day training-cum-awareness program on post harvest primary processing and value addition on 04.09.2014 and 11.10.2014. The participants were educated through lectures and live demonstration in Mini Dal Mill, Mini Dal cleaner machine and all equipment of Agro Processing Center of the department.
All the departments are well equipped with modern laboratories. In addition the college has computer center with free access to internet, Students workshop, Library, GIS Lab. and a Training Cell.
More than 426 students have been honoured with B. Tech. degree and about 50 students have been awarded M.Tech. degrees in Agricultural Engineering by this college. Our students have made history in several fields. Most of our alumni are well placed in government as well as private sector organizations within India and abroad.
The students of this college are getting high ranks in all India level competitive examinations like GATE, IIM, IRMA, ICAR-JRF, IFS & leading financial institutions and Banks. Many times the students have secured 1st rank on all India basis in GATE.
