Agricultural Engineering College and Research Institute, Kumulur is the only constituent College of Tamil Nadu   Agricultural University   offering     B.Tech. (Agrl.Engg.)  degree   to   produce    the  technocrats  towards   the  challenges of population explosion, labour shortage, ethnic energy crisis, food  and  fuel  shortages, intensive resource inventory  towards  alleviation 
of  poverty  and  environmental stress. 

The  Agricultural  Engineering  College and Research Institute was established as a constituent educational institution of the prestigious Tamil Nadu Agricultural University in the academic year of 1972 in Coimbatore. 

The   college  was  shifted  to  Kumulur  in  the   year  1992.  The   campus  is  at  a  distance  of  25 km  from   Trichy. This campus  has   been   extended   in  an  area  of  280 acres  of  experimental  farm,  updated  with infrastructural facilities for academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.       

Goals :
  • Agriculture  is  the  mother of all professions and sustains of human life.  Agricultural Engineering, a vital  discipline of agriculture deals with application of engineering techniques in agriculture to  achieve  maximum   production by using  the  available  crop production inputs such as men, materials and money.  
  • Agricultural  Engineering  has  played  a  major  role  in all  developed  countries, in  ensuring  timely field  operations, effective applications of various inputs, and in  reducing the  drudgery  involved  in  farm  operations. 
  • Conservation  of  natural  resources, soil and  water  conservation  along  with  the  techniques of augmenting surface and ground water resources for effective utilization in the agriculture is focused by the faculty. 

Objectives :
  •     To  meet  the  demand  for  technical  man power  in  teaching,  research and  extension  activities  of agricultural engineering.
  •     To provide technical knowhow for the development of agricultural engineering gadgets and agro-based industries in this region. 
  •     To organize research in an inter-disciplinary way for taking up location specific problems of the region. 
  •     To transfer the technologies developed to the farming community, entrepreneurs and industrialists.
