Polytechnic in Agricultural Engineering

Targhadia

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.

The medium of teaching of this course is English and 10th standard passed students are eligible for admission.

It offers various courses related to Agricultural Engineering such 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.

Besides this the institute is also to care the following objectives.

  • To develop human resources and give exposure to the students in the field of Agricultural Engineering.
  • To assist farmers to increase the food production and to reduce the cost of cultivation.
  • To assist extension activities in the field of Agricultural Engineering.
  • To be the premier institute providing quality education to the students in order to make them ideal citizens to serve the community, specially the farming community for its enrichment and advancement.
  • To provide formal & non-formal quality education specially in the field of Agricultural Engineering to make them better professionals.
  • To provide best quality trained Technical Man Power to the field of Agricultural Engineering Sector of Gujarat State.
  • To achieve excellence in technical education through continuous up gradation and improvement to contribute to the well being of human kind.
  • Offering quality education in the Agricultural Engineering and related field to produce Technical Manpower as per requirement of Industry and other sectors of employment.
  • Establishing linkage with industry and farming community for sharing resources for mutual growth and development.
  • Promoting innovation and development for bringing improvement for technical learning processes and instructional resources development by making use of latest information technical and instructional delivery system.
  • Promoting self employment and entrepreneurship amongst students.
