About the Department

The department of Basic Engineering was established in March 2017 at the College of Agricultural Engineering & Technology (COAE&T), CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, Haryana. This department encompasses several important disciplines of engineering, including Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, and Civil Engineering. The Electrical & Electronics Engineering discipline aims to familiarize students with the latest knowledge of electrical and electronic equipment’s, instrumentation and control systems, used in agricultural operations. It focuses on current technologies such as precision agriculture, artificial intelligence, and electricity generation from renewable energy sources, which are utilized in agricultural processes. Additionally, students are trained in the use and development of information technology tools. The Civil Engineering discipline is dedicated to providing knowledge in surveying, levelling of farm fields, designing hydrological irrigation structures, farm structures and building designs, as well as structures for the agro-processing industry, silos, and bin designing, etc. The department is also involved in testing building materials. Similarly, the Mechanical Engineering discipline trains the students in understanding engineering principles related to machine design, thermodynamics, material properties used in agricultural equipment design, and computer-aided design (CAD) and workshop technology. Overall, this discipline helps the other core departments of Agricultural Engineering in designing and manufacturing efficient farm machinery equipment’s and other relevant components that are essential for sustainable and modern agriculture operations.

Awards and Recognitions

Dr. I. S. Sheoran was awarded Hari Om Ashram award for team research, Rafi Ahmed Kidwai award and NAAS Fellow : -

Infrastructural Development

  • The department has a Botanical Garden spread over an area of 10.5 acres with rich biodiversity. The department has done pioneering work in conserving the indigenour local species of plant and also introduction of exotic specis (approximately 600) from other places. Various native and exotic trees, shurbs, herbs, climbers, aquatic plants, cacti and succulents have been collected and maintained for imparting knowledge to our students as well as related scientists. Flower shows are organized from time to time.
  • The department has 9 screening houses near the college building.
  • The department has developed 20 salinity micro plots to determine phyto-remediating potential of halophytic flora and 24 lysimeter have been installed in field to determine the transpirational potential of trees having importannce in bio-drainage.
  • Experimental farms spread over 25 acres have been developed to evaluate bio-drainage potential of trees to improve waterlogged soils.

Package and Practices

system having Eucalyptus tereticornis as a strip plantation should be established on the water logged soils. In this model north to south field boundary is converted into 2.6 m wide and 45 cm high raised bund on which two rows of trees can be planted. The intervening space is left for the crops with minimum of shade effect due to the north-south direction of bunds� initiated by Drs. O.P. Toky, Rajiv Angrish and J.C. Kaushik included in the HAU Package of Practices.

Other Activities of the Department

Van Mahotsav was celebrated at CCS HAU premises in Botanical Garden of the Department of Botany & Plant Physiology On 27th July, 2015. The guest of honour in the function was honourable Agriculture Minister Sh. O.P.Dhankar.
