RECENT ACTIVITIES

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