The Department of Agricultural Engineering institution was established in 2022, at this institution .It offers a 4-year Bachelor of Engineering degree in Agricultural Engineering as per the guidelines of Anna University. The department currently has an intake of 30 students. Agricultural Engineering is a field of engineering that focuses on the design, construction, and improvement of farming equipment and machinery. Agricultural Engineers utilize the latest technology to meet the challenges of environmental issues and activities, integrating technology with farming.

To provide practical training and hands-on experience, students are given opportunities to work with machine components and equipment, test agricultural machinery to ensure safety and performance, and gain exposure to water and environmental concerns. In the field, students receive training on crop production using tractor-operated farm implements. The department provides internships and training opportunities for students in farm machinery manufacturing industries, drip irrigation manufacturing companies, hydroponics, food processing industries, renewable energy industries, and more.

One of the main goals of the department is to provide technical support tofarmers and entrepreneurs to establish large and small-scale industries

B.Tech Agricultural Engineering course is intended to promote skills and explore career opportunities in agriculture and its allied industry. Our instructional curriculum includes topics related to plant, animal, soil, food sciences, landscaping, environmental and horticulture. The student of SRRCET College of Engineering and Technology acquire skills required to meet their career aspirations, professional skills for gainful employment and leadership capabilities to work efficiently. Additionally, the course provides research opportunities to enhance the interest of the students.

Our Department of Agriculture contributes to overall agricultural research by enhancing its research infrastructure to grow into one of the best agricultural scientific and technological institutions in India. We strive to establish morecollaboration in agricultural research to enhance innovation and make vital contributions to the agriculture ecosystem. Our students are trained to solve major technological problems
