About the Department
Studying Agricultural Science in GEHU implies a deep exploration of an archaic lifestyle and multiple opportunities in innovation & technology. With well qualified and experienced faculty members, highly equipped labs, well-developed classroom infrastructure along with access to wi-fi and a well-stocked library; we here at GEHU intend to provide students with the highest quality of education.
The credibility of the department lies in its projects and placements. A graduate from agricultural science can be appointed as a research officer, quality assurance officer, agriculture officer, agriculture loan officer (in banks), production manager, operations manager and farm manager with state agriculture departments. In the private sector agriculture science graduates may find jobs as managers at plantations, as officers at fertilizer manufacturing firms, agriculture machinery industries, agricultural products marketing firms and food processing units among other jobs. The average starting salary of these officers is generally between Rs 5 to 6 lakh per annum. With direct field exposure to real life farming and technology, we are able to produce creative students who would later become leaders of their organization. The department’s focus on NCC/NSS and sports also help the students remain deft and active in all their pursuits.
We envision ourselves as a leading centre of academia, research and development in agriculture by providing responsive education to the student and responsive training and services to the farmer for development of agriculture and agro-industry.
To disseminate knowledge of agriculture through quality education by using technology, infrastructure and the framework needed for development of agriculture.
