Overview


India being primarily an agricultural based country, a majority of the country’s population are dependent on agricultural farms and its produces for a livelihood. Indian agricultural industry forms more than 13% of the country’s GDP. In terms of agricultural produce and the land area under cultivation, India comes second in the whole world. Even though self-reliant, the country however lags behind in the use of technology in the agricultural sector. It is by using technology that we can safeguard future generations from the vagaries of food insecurities. It is for the agricultural process engineers and the food engineers to ensure food security through innovations and scientific development. There’s thus a large scope for engineers and scientists to shine in the field of agricultural and food engineering in India.


Graduate in agricultural, food processing and other related branches of study. Admission to the course is mainly based on merit of qualifying exams and written tests.

The course duration is 2 years.

More about the course


This is a useful postgraduate program to learn the ways to devise new technology that can be used in a large way to improve upon the farm output. The program familiarizes you with the advancements in technology that are coming up in the farm sector. It helps you understand effectively about land resource planning, irrigation, crop production, crop rotation, pest control, fertilizers and usage of advanced machineries for improving yield. You also get to study about dairy engineering and as part of food engineering get to learn about food processing, packaging and transportation. You will be learning about food preserving techniques like refrigeration, freezing, drying and thermal processing.

Scope of work and prospects


The scope for engineers and scientists in agricultural process and food engineering is great as the country is still a long way from using technology in the farm sector on a large scale. The country today needs a good number of experts in this field to improve upon the yield to ensure food security for all. In the government sector there are numerous opportunities to work as scientists in the agricultural research labs. There are a good number of agricultural universities where too one can work as an educator. One can also pursue a PhD program in this field to improve upon one’s career prospects. The private sector too provides for opportunities as an entrepreneur.
