Faculty of Engineering and Engineering Technology

The Department of Agricultural and Bioresource Engineering of the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi, was established in 1998 initially bearing Agricultural Engineering Programme and later in 2014 renamed as Department of Agricultural and Bioresource Engineering under the Faculty of Engineering and Engineering Technology. Currently, the Department offers courses leading to the award of B. Eng, PGD,

M. Eng, and PhD degree programmes.

The philosophy of the Department is to accelerate sustainable agricultural development and utilization of biological resources for the benefit of the Nation and World at large. These would be achieved through dynamic engineering education, research and public/community services. The manpower training in Agricultural and Bioresource Engineering would stem from the combined knowledge of Science, Agriculture and Engineering professions. These include integration of principles of agricultural production and eventually culminate with processes associated with the production of biologically based goods and the management as well as protection of natural resources. Research and community development services are focused on efficient and environmentally effective methods of producing food, fibre and bio-based products and renewable energy for the Nation.
