The Department of Agricultural Engineering was created in the year 2015 to train the needed manpower for the agricultural engineering subsector.

Currently, the Department runs a four (4) year composite degree called BSc. Agricultural Engineering with specializations in Irrigation and Drainage Engineering, Farm Power and Machinery Engineering, Soil and Water Conservation Engineering, Food and Post-Harvest Engineering.

The Department whilst acknowledging the challenging agricultural needs of the semi-arid areas of the sub-region has designed the course modules to meet the needs of students and industry of the sub-region especially. The focus of the Department of Agricultural Engineering is to promote the development of new products in the agricultural engineering sector, effective and efficient agricultural water use, build capacity of the needed human resource for increased agricultural production.

Plans and course modules are also being developed for graduate programmes in the various specializations of the agricultural engineering sector.
