Introduction 

The Department of Agricultural Engineering at Muhammad Nawaz Shareef University of Agriculture, Multan (MNSUAM) is one of its kind in the country that integrates engineering principles with natural and artificial systems to provide support for agricultural industries and enterprises with special focus on solving complex, rapidly changing problems and develop technology related to agro-industrial machinery and processes, energy and water use efficiency, renewable energy development, and instrumentation and robotics.

Department aims to enable students to drive innovation as our discipline continues to be transformed by our changing world. Students increasingly need to participate in problem solving across traditional boundaries. Rapid technological changes are an added challenge, which implications driven by diminishing resources and growing population.

Departmental Activities  

Department of Agricultural Engineering arranged multiple activities among them following two events remained prominent. Agro Industrial stake holder discussion forum was organized on March 06, 2017 under the chairmanship of Prof. Dr. Asif Ali, Vice Chancellor of MNS-UAM and Syed Fakhar Imam Shah, Ex-speaker national assembly embraced this event as chief guest. Aim of the discussion was to asses need of industry and to set trends for the Agricultural Engineering degree program. Discussion forum recommended to include industry oriented courses and vowed to strengthen the industry-academia collaboration.  

      

Considering importance of national issue related to water, an international seminar on “Water resources management” was organized by Department of Agricultural Engineering, MNS-UAM. Two experts from Surface Water Management Section of Murray Darling Basin Authority, Australia were international guest speakers
