AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING PROGRAMME

 

INTRODUCTION

Agricultural engineering degree programe would prepare students to work professionally in the many fields of agriculture and cover all aspects of the industry and covers embraces the following disciplines: 1) agricultural machinery, equipment and power units; 2) agricultural buildings and structures; 3) agricultural electrification and energy; 4) agricultural processing and food engineering; 5) soil and water conservation; 6) irrigation and drainage and water resources management; 7) agricultural waste disposal and utilization and environmental management; 8) agricultural information resources and technology; 9) agricultural instrumentation and control; 10) fishery and aquacultural resources engineering and 11) forest product resource.

Earning a degree gives students textbook knowledge and hands-on vision of their chosen field. Fieldwork and laboratory projects combined with actual practice provide a well-rounded education.

Aims and objectives

  • applying their unique educational backgrounds in agricultural engineering by providing appropriate solutions to problems and adding value to the research, development, and design processes encountered in a variety of work environments;
  • considering systems as a whole when solving problems, looking beyond components and subsystems individually;
  • integrate technical knowledge with organizational, listening, communication, and interpersonal skills to lead and work effectively in teams,
  • responsibly addressing issues such as health and safety, personal and professional ethics, cultural diversity, as well as the social, environmental, and global impacts of their work; and
  • continuing their personal growth, professional development, and professional and community service, through various opportunities provided by institutions, professional organizations and other venues.
  • ACADEMIC STAFF TEACHING IN THE PORGRAMME (FULL TIME)
