The Department of Processing & Agricultural Structures came into being as a result of trifurcation of the erstwhile Department of Agricultural Engineering in the college of Agricultural Engineering with effect from Dec.1974. Since its beginning the Department has been engaged in teaching, research and extension activities primarily in the field of Processing & Agricultural Structures. However in order to cater to the changing scenario of Indian agricultural, additional PG programmes in the field of Sugar Engineering (M.Tech.) & Agro Industrial Processing (M.Tech. & Ph.D) were started during the year 1991-1992. In order to prepare trained manpower, in the light of global competition due to WTO, GATT etc., the UG & PG curricular of this department has been further reviewed & upgrade to being about uniformity of the same throughout the country. As such the name of Department has been changed to Processing & Food Engineering in a meeting held on 13.11.03 in college committee room & notification for the same was issued vide CAE 15551-70 dated 11.03.04. Consequently, the PG programme has also been modified to M.Tech. & Ph.D. in Processing & Food Engineering discipline instead of prevalent programmes.
