Highlights

| What makes us different
The Department of Agricultural Sciences equips students with skill-oriented knowledge in agriculture and rural development. We provide them with all the theoretical, analytical, and practical expertise required to take the field of agriculture, a prominent cornerstone of our economy, into the future. Here are a few ways we are making this possible:
  1. 01 On-Campus Training

    Instructional farms, crop museums, and herbal gardens are just a few of the facilities we have that give our students live experience of what they are learning.

  2. 02 RAWEP

    A pioneering program, the Rural Agricultural Work Experience Programme involves 90 days of training in rural farms where the students get a more hands-on experience.

  3. 03 Multi-Disciplinary Approach

    For a well-rounded education in the field of agriculture, we include courses on a variety of subjects including agricultural economics, genetics, bio-technology and rural development.


State-of-the-art infrastructure such as the Green House, the Poly House, the Automatic Weather Station, and a laboratory brimming with the latest industrial equipment make our department one of the most compelling in the Academy.
