The Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU) had its genesis from establishment of an Agricultural School at Saidapet, Madras, Tamil Nadu, as early as 1868 and it was later relocated at Coimbatore.
The application of engineering in agriculture is mandatory for complete mechanization of agricultural farms. This programme provides the students with both theoretical and practical knowledge on engineering applications in agriculture. The curriculum involves courses in basic agriculture, basic engineering, soil and water conservation, farm machinery and power, food processing and renewable energy. The students can be able to shine in all fields and also the programme helps the students to transform themselves as a young entrepreneur. Also Tamil Nadu Agricultural University offers B.Tech (Agricultural Engineering) with a curriculum designed particularly to cope up with industrial needs, with a view to mould the student’s job oriented and get better placements after graduation.
Agricultural Engineer is a bridge between farming community and the industrial world. Only an agricultural engineer can convert the imagination of farmer to reality by linking with industry. Hence the programme

The four year B.Tech (Agricultural Engineering) degree program focuses on engineering discipline that applies engineering sciences and technology to agricultural production and processing. The syllabus covers all the topics in depth. Especially in final year, we are allowed to present our projects and undergo internship trainings. Apart from these, there are industrial visits to attain practical knowledge and there are separate hours allotted for industrial visit. Experiential learning inside the campus is a great experience. The sophisticated infrastructure and laboratory facilities provide us wide scope for carrying out innovative projects.
