Central Institute Of Agricultural Engineering (CIAE)

Font Size :


Central Institute of Agricultural Engineering (CIAE), Bhopal, was established in 1976 to address research issues related to agricultural engineering in India. Initially, research and developmental work related to farm machinery, post harvest technology and energy in agriculture, were taken up. The various divisions in the Institute were regrouped and two additional divisions namely Agro Industrial Extension and Instrumentation were set up during the 7th Five Year Plan. The divisions were further re-organized and a third division named Irrigation and Drainage Engineering was made operational later.

Major objectives of the Central Institute of Agricultural Engineering:

  • To carry out basic, applied and adaptive research leading to a improvement of equipment, technology, process for crop production, irrigation and drainage, post-harvest technology and processing, and energy-use in agriculture and rural industries.
  • Improvement of hardware and technology in association with other ICAR Institutes in the field of crops, horticulture, aquaculture and animal husbandry for production and processing.
  • Provide leadership and co-ordinate network of research with state agricultural universities for producing location-specific technologies.
  • Render consultancy and attempt sponsored research from industry and other organization
  • Work as a depository of information on agricultural engineering
  • Act as a center for training in research methodologies and technology and conduct post graduate education programs leading to Master's and Doctoral degrees in Agricultural Engineering
  • Exchanging ideas and technological know-how with similar types of national and international organizations for accomplishing all major objectives
