OVER VIEW

     Gujarat is one of the highly progressive and development conscious states in the country. The agricultural and the industrial development of the state are taking place at a fast rate not only due to the keen interest of the State Government but also due to the progressive and enterprising nature of the people of the state.

    Agricultural Engineering plays a very important role in increasing production and productivity of agricultural crops, thereby, increasing the income of farmers. Also, timeliness of farm operation through efficient agricultural implements and machinery as well as appropriate land and water management activities along with efficient post-harvest technology and processing as well as efficient energy utilization are the important areas in which Agricultural Engineering profession has been playing major role.

    Under the faculty of Agricultural Engineering and Technology, the Government of Gujarat had sanctioned a Polytechnic in Agricultural Engineering to Junagadh Agricultural University during the year 2012-13 with the intake of 35 students. Accordingly, a Polytechnic in Agricultural Engineering has started its academic activities from the academic year 2013 at Targhadia which is about 15 km from Rajkot on N.H.27.

    It offers various courses related to Agricultural Engineeringsuch as Water Resources Engineering, Farm Machinery and Implements, Soil and water conservation, Post-Harvest Technology, Non-conventional Energy Sources, Agro Process Engineering, Entrepreneurship development & management, Watershed Management, Farm Power Engineering etc. to the students. The unique feature of this diploma course is industrial training of one semester (six months). It is mandatory to undergo six months industrial training for every student, as a part of curriculum which certainly develops their professional skill and also the entrepreneur outlook.

   The primary objective of this three year (six semesters) diploma course is to create and nourish a stimulating learning environment that ensures a globally relevant education based on Eternal human values and to provide trained man power to the educational institutes, various departments of Government, NGO and industries engaged in agro engineering.
