- The basic eligibility criteria for pursuing B.E Agricultural Engineering is a pass degree in Higher Secondary Examination or 10+2 in Science stream with subjects such as Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics (PCM) or Physics, Chemistry and Biology (PCB) with a minimum of 40 – 50% marks from a recognized college or university.
- State level entrance examination marks also take into consideration while allotting seats to the candidates.
The minimum duration of B.E Agricultural Engineering course is about 4 years divided into eight semesters with each semester lasting for a period of six months. In each semester, students have to face different sets of theoretical and practical or laboratory sessions.
Apart from theoretical subjects, practical sessions also give much importance. Workshops and study tours are held at regular intervals. During the last two semesters, project work and industrial training are also present.
There are so many branches of engineering that choosing the right one has become very difficult for the Science stream students. There are the old traditional branches on one side and on the other side, there are relatively new branches. Along with these branches, there are some offbeat branches available which due to some reason, remain relatively unpopular among 12th Science stream students. One among these is the B.E Agricultural Engineering course. This course is offered by a number of Agricultural universities and institutes in India. Students find this course to be less valuable and unattractive. But, the fact is this branch is highly job oriented. Particularly, in an agriculture country like India, agricultural engineering professionals are in high demand. So, pursuing B.E Agricultural Engineering course will ensure one a good job.
The agricultural Engineering program combines the techniques and concepts of Agriculture and modern technology and engineering practices. It can be said that the program is a combination of more than one discipline. It is a combination of various disciplines such as plant and animal sciences, environmental science, geology, modern agricultural technology and core engineering branches.
B.E Agricultural Engineering Scope and Job Opportunities
B.E Agricultural Engineering graduate may join an agricultural department of different State Government. There are also a number of government jobs available for agricultural graduates. Apart from that, other Government department where graduates may find jobs are Dairy Boards, Food Department, Coir Board, Research Departments, etc.
