About Department of Agricultural and Bioresources Engineering

The Department of Agricultural and Bioresources Engineering started in July 25, 2012 (2012/2013 academic session) with a vision to become one of the best in the world in the near future. The philosophy of the department is to train students with broad based knowledge of various aspects of Agricultural and Bioresources Engineering, thereby producing practical-oriented graduates with skills that are needed in mechanized agriculture, produce and product storage, as well as primary and secondary processing of agricultural and bioresources products. Graduates of the programme are also to possess the requisite skills, for all such activities, that enhance the preservation and conservation of natural and environmental ecosystem.

Presently, the department emphasizes four major areas of Agricultural and Bioresources Engineering and these include:

  • Agro-resources Power and Machinery Engineering
  • Soil, Water and Aquacultural Engineering
  • Foodand Bioproduct Processing Engineering
  • Agro-resources Structures and Bio-environmental Engineering

The department will definitely make progress in teaching, research and extension in the afore-mentioned areas based on the quality and profile of the academic members of staff and the technologists.The 5-year programme is hosted by the Department of Agricultural and Bioresources Engineering in the Ikole Campus of Federal University Oye-Ekiti.
