School of Agricultural Sciences

Overview

The School of Agricultural Sciences is dedicated to providing high quality education and training in the field of Agricultural Sciences following curricula underpinning multidisciplinary approach by integrating technological advancements. The School strives to meet international standards as well generate technologies and motivated trained human resource to foster sustainable agricultural production, protection and processing systems as envisaged by Indian Council of Agricultural Research and Government of India.

The School offers 4 year B.Sc. (Hons.) Agriculture, 5 year Integrated B.Sc. Hons. (Agriculture) + MBA (Agriculture) and 3 year Ph.D. degree programmes and 1 year PG Diploma in Plant Protection. These courses are supported by the faculties and facilities of a number of other Departments including Basic Sciences, Biotechnology, Microbiology, Food Science, Engineering, Economics, Business, Languages, Law, Sociology etc. These programmes are an amalgam of several relevant branches of science and technology and are aimed at producing job oriented, well trained, groomed and motivated human resource for various agricultural, horticultural and allied sectors.. Students from all over India and foreign countries like Nepal, Nigeria, Somalia, Malawi, Sudan and others are admitted every year.

School of Agricultural Sciences also focuses on inculcating the ethical and moral values in students. Students are motivated to interact with the farmers and participate actively in seminars, symposia, conferences and workshops. The School has eminent and highly qualified faculty with Doctoral and Post-Doctoral research experience and excellent track record in teaching and research in the current areas of Agriculture and allied Sciences.

Objective
  • To foster a strong foundation in agricultural and horticultural principles and practices to make students globally competitive.         
  • To develop strong interest in agricultural and horticultural technologies by enhancing the problem-solving skills in students so that they are motivated to pursue research and entrepreneurship development.
  • To emphasize on the peri-urban agriculture and protected cultivation to address the needs of the growing population and changing environment.
  • To train the students to develop and demonstrate technology for income and employment generation.
  • To create a sense of responsibility among students towards the use of scientific knowledge in agriculture for the benefit of farmers.

Dean’s Message

The School of Agricultural Sciences (SASR), being a beautiful conglomeration of fundamental sciences of Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Botany & Zoology and their applied branches, like Agriculture, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Data-Science & Analytics, Environmental Sciences, Food Science & Technology, Materials Science, Microbiology, Nanotechnology etc., provides an ideal platform with opportunities to create new knowledge not only through individual or collective horizontal exploration, but also by digging into the unfathomed depths, or flights to the heights of imagination. This allows efforts to just quench the unending human thirst for knowledge as well as to bring together the principles, skills and materials from the different branches of science to understand and solve existing and likely problems of local or global significance. The students are nurtured in the multidisciplinary scientific environment and get they get opportunity to interact closely with luminaries in various fields of science from top institutions of India and abroad. At the same time all the students are provided opportunity to relevant industries, science and technology R&D institutions and to the community to understand ground level problems and think over ways to solve the same. Innovative research projects are assigned to UG, PG and Ph.D. students. The Indian and International students of SBSR can aspire to become scientists, teachers, technocrats, entrepreneurs in private and public sectors and above all, qualified citizens of the future to adopt scientific approach with a human face.
