After admission, the students undergo a set of courses that help them understand the basics of Farm Machinery and Power Engineering as per choice based credit system (CBCS) with a total credit load of 70 credits of which 30 credits are exclusively earmarked for their thesis research.
Master’s thesis research
After completing the courses in the first year, the students start their research. Each Student is assigned to an experienced faculty, approved by the Dean of School of Post Graduate Studies, who guide the student on his/her choice of research topic.
PG students are encouraged to have internship training at other institutes for a couple of months, either in India or abroad. Furthermore, the students are exposed to several scientific events like symposia, workshops, trainings and conferences.
I enrolled in the Farm Machinery and Power Engineering M. Tech (Agricultural Engineering). Well equipped hi-tech labs and workshop, highly experienced and friendly teaching staff, pleasant research facilities, big libraries and smooth administration, the only agricultural institution flashes in mind with these facilities is the Department of Farm Machinery & Power Engineering, AEC&RI, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore.
The Professors and Scientists are the foundation stone of this esteemed department. They not only help students for understanding the concept but also guide them for searching the existing problem in our field and teach them to come up with appropriate solutions.The outreach of the department around the globe provide a great exposure to the students. The tie-ups with well renowned institution and MNCs help the students to get internship as well as fellowship during the course of work. During the research work, I also get facilitated by Junior Research Fellowship of Rs. 20,000 per month which helped me undergoing a quality research work and also aided my living.
In my opinion, the department is an ideal destination for pursuing the Post graduation in the field of Farm Machinery. My experience during the research work was phenomenal. The highly equipped workshops make the development work quite easy. The good connectivity of the department with the market, makes the development work flexible and speedy by making availability of the raw materials in the door steps.
In my views, the Department of Farm Machinery and Power Engineering is a mile stone in the field of Farm mechanisation – globally. I feel myself very blessed and proud to be the part of the great institution.
