About the College

The College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology (CAET) was established in the year 1966. Well acclaimed as one of the leading colleges under SAU-ICAR system, CAET-Bhubaneswar is imparting education, research and extension in the field of Agricultural Engineering since more than four decades. It provides highly qualified technical as well as managerial human resources to the public and industrial sector through its B.Tech,M.Tech and Ph.D. Programmes.

CAET is a lively institution, with its dedicated & qualified teaching staff. The college is well equipped with modern laboratory facilities to meet the challenge & the need of the Govt. and Industries. The students undergo 6 months vocational training in various leading industries and training institutes as a part of the curriculum. The students undertake a Project work in their final year as partial fulfillment of their requirement for the degree. They also present technical seminars in their concerned projects.

Every year 70 students are inducted through a tough selection procedure taking into consideration the career marks secured at 10th and 12th level and also the entrance test conducted by the parent university i.e. Orissa University of Agriculture & Technology(OUAT) , thereby ensuring the intake of highly meritorious students.

We at CAET, are working with a team spirit, with dedication, sincerity and enthusiasm to build ourselves and the society as a whole.
