B.Tech Agriculture Engineering(B.Tech.)

Course Duration

8 Semester
(4 Years)

Eligibility Criteria

Pass in PUC / 10+2 examination with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as compulsory subjects and obtained at least 45% marks (40% in case of candidate belonging to SC/ST category) in the above subjects taken together, of any Board recognised by the respective State Governments / Central Government / Union Territories or any other qualification recognised as equivalent thereto.


Early civilization led to advancements in agriculture science and technology. To maintain their cities, the Middle Eastern Sumerian culture and other early pre-Greco-Roman civilisations understood the necessity of competent agricultural labour in the year 5500 BC. Around this time, among other advancements, irrigation was developed. Early in the 18th century, farming saw a rapid succession of changes that dramatically enhanced output and improved the process.

Due to the significance of agriculture and to cater to ensure the security of food and nutrition, REVA University has initiated the course B.Tech in Agriculture Engineering. The six disciplines that make up this field are aquacultural engineering, agricultural biotechnology, food process engineering, farm machinery and power engineering, and land and water resources engineering.
