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.
