The College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology (CAET) was established in the year 1966. Well acclaimed as one of the leading colleges under SAUICAR system, CAETBhubaneswar 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 d
dicated 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 64 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.

To organize and conduct undergraduate and postgraduate programs in agricultural engineering leading to Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral degrees, fulfilling their prescribed objectives.
To undertake basic and applied research in different aspects of agricultural engineering covering production, protection, value addition, marketing and management.
To develop technologies suitable for the region in the field of farm power and agro-energy, farm machinery and equipment, soil and water conservation en
ineering, post harvest and process engineering, food and dairy engineering, agricultural structures and other related areas.
To organize short term training programs and vocational course in the specialized areas of agricultural engineering.
To organize programs related to transfer of technologies for agriculture and rural development in the region.
To collaborate with other agencies involved in teaching, research and developmental programs in field of agricultural engineering, nationally and internationally.
To provide consultancy services to farmers and others engaged in agricultural and rural development, particularly in application of engineering principles and practices.
Every year 64 students are admitted to B.Tech (Agriculture Engineering) course on the basis of their performance and ranking in the Common Entrance Test conducted by OUAT. The undergraduate course includes subjects on basic sciences like Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, English, Basic Engineering Courses, Computer Science and core engineering courses like Farm Machinery & Power, Soil & Water Conservation Engineering, Agricultural Processing & Food Engineering, Agricultural Structure, Civil & Env
ronmental Engineering and Mechanical & Electrical Engineering etc.
The college offers a two-year full-time postgraduate program leading to M.Tech in Farm machinery and Power (FMP), Soil and Water Conservation Engineering (SWCE) and Agricultural Processing and Food Engineering (APFE).
The college is offering 3 years course credit Ph.D. programme in three departments namely Department of Farm Machinery and Power, Department of Soil and Water Conservation Engineering and Department of Agricultural Processing and Food Engineering.
CAET aims at providing organizations with engineers who are an appropriate fit for the organizations needs. We always endeavour to build such capabilities among the students in a systematic manner. The training and placement division lead by a senior and experienced person, has a focused approach to prepare students right from the second year of joining the college. The preparation process addresses such areas as building relationship and projecting a personality that is appropriate to a young e
gineering graduate taking an assignment in an organization.
We address two different aspects of students capability. Experienced teaching staff takes care of the technological abilities to be able to recall knowledge gained during academics for application at work place and secondly the soft skills required which now a days plays an important role in the industry. We also have facilities within college premises for conducting campus interviews and these include those for presentation, conducting aptitude tests, group discussions and interviews.
Training and Placement division aims at specifically developing these abilities through planned training for the students. The institute looks forward to conducting such activities by the help of selected internal and external faculties. This training will include personality development, communication skills, and extensive exercises to inculcate analytical abilities empowering students to interpret data faster.
We have seen a lot of progresses in terms of more number of students being absorbed by various prestigious companies over the years, as also more and more esteemed companies have approached us for students time and again.
