Message From Chairman

I am pleased to welcome you in the site of Agricultural Engineering Department, College of Food and Agricultural Sciences, King Saud University. The department has an essential role since its inception in 1394 in serving the agricultural and industrial sectors through graduation of a large number of highly qualified academically agricultural engineers. Students learn skills, and basic sciences and engineering that would enable them to access different agricultural systems with higher efficiency to ensure the best results both technically and economically. The department has a number of laboratories equipped with technical units and instruments to train students and who is interested in agricultural engineering. Also, there is a wide range of educational farm machinery and tractors, various irrigation systems, greenhouses, and crops storages used for training. There is also a workshop belonging to the Agricultural Engineering Department equipped with modern training and equipment. The department has high experienced competence faculty, assistant investigator and technicians who contributed greatly to the completion of a large number of applied engineering research that serve the agricultural and industrial sectors, as well as authoring and translation of a large number of books and scientific publications and press outreach. In conclusion, I thank the visitor for the navigation of this site and wish to find useful information.   Dr. Fahad Naser Alkoaik

About section

Agricultural engineering is essential in regards to planning and carry in out the agricultural projects. particularly those which are applied on large scales. Moreover, it represents the mid-joint between both the agricultural and engineering sciences. There is no doubt that there are direct and active effects of the agricultural engineering on human progress and their welfare. The reason is that it uses the optimum scientific methods for solving problems related to agriculture which in turn helps in the increase  the agricultural production and providing the food security. The Agricultural engineering applies the principles of engineering methods for solving agriculture problems in various fields. Such fields are food process engineering, irrigation and drainage systems, farm power and machinery, and design of agricultural structures and environmental controls, precautions, storage and expiry dates. Measurement of field performance and laboratory educations.
