The objectives of the B. Tech. degree programme in Agricultural and Environmental Engineering are to:

  • Train engineers capable of applying engineering principles to agricultural mechanization, crop and food production, preservation and storage, farm and agricultural business management, irrigation, farm structures, rural electrification, waste water and effluent management and environmental planning and management.

  • Train engineers for the economic selection, optimum utilization, operation, maintenance and repair of labour saving equipment that are used in agriculture and environmental management with the objective of maximizing the benefits derived from them.

  • Train engineers who can relate their activities to the needs of the society in general and to develop in them a sense of responsibility that is required for their professional work.

  • Identify the limitation of our students and to make a real effort to provide compensating measures.
  • Make continuing reappraisal of our curriculum to ensure its consistency with the goal of training the most productive agricultural engineer that the given parameters of time and financial outlay will permit.

Philosophy of the Department

The desire of the department of Agricultural and Environmental Engineering is to create a teaching and research environment for imparting appropriate skill and knowledge in Agricultural, food and rural development in an environmental friendly and sustainable manner; conduct cutting edge researches that will advance frontiers of knowledge; contribute a substantial proportion of mutation and inventions in Nigerian agricultural system and pursuit of academic excellence to foster the development of food and agro-allied industries in Nigeria.

The mission of the department in pursuit of its vision is to be among the top rated Agricultural and Environmental Engineering Department in Nigeria and World at large; to imbibe in our students the right ethic, attitude and Behaviour request of Engineers; to empower them academically and professionally for the creative and effective practice of Engineering in self employment, food and agro-allied industries, Government and other agencies involved in the management and regulation of agricultural, food and natural resources.
