Agricultural engineering, like all other branches of engineering uses scientific principles and technology to solve problems relating to sustainable agricultural production. Agricultural Engineers may perform tasks such as planning, supervising and managing the building of dairy effluent schemes, irrigation, drainage, flood and water control systems, perform environmental impact assessments and interpret research results and implement relevant practices.
Agricultural engineers also specialize in other aspects like power system and machinery design; structures and environmental science; and food and bioprocess engineering. They discover the ways to conserve soil and water and to improve the processing of agricultural products.
For making a bright career in agricultural engineering one should have enough logic and practical thinking ability for inventiveness and innovation. The career is interesting, challenging as well as rewarding.
