Our History

The Department of Agricultural and Bio-Environmental Engineering was established in 1981, the Department admitted her first set of students into ND programme in the 1981/82 Academic Session. The first set of HND students were admitted in 1984/85 Academic Session. The movement from Akure to Ado-Ekiti in 1986 affected the Department adversely.

The Department was stopped from admitting students into any of its programmes (ND and HND) between 1988 and 1990 due to space problem. Since 1991 the Department had again started admitting students.

At present the Department is running both ND and HND programmes in full time and part time modes with options in Farm Power and Machinery, Soil and Water and Post harvest Engineering.

The Department has her own building with equipped workshops and laboratories with qualified staff.
