About B.Sc (Agriculture) Degree Programme

B. Sc. Agriculture Degree programme is based on the development of national human resource capital in the field of agriculture and allied sciences. It was felt that highest priority to agriculture is required for the alleviation of hunger, under nutrition and poverty. It was a general consensus that the country needs creation of skilled, talented, entrepreneurial human resource and knowledge pool, especially of young graduates, along the value chain. Thus course curricula for Agricultural Sciences and their delivery systems should be so designed that the graduates produced become job providers rather than job seekers. Their skill, scale and speed should harness demographic dividends, meet the fast growing demand for quality products and democratically promote inclusiveness. In other words, our educational system and course curricula must be designed and geared to ensure excellence, relevance and high quality of products, zero environment footprint, climate resilience, high efficiency, and competitiveness. In doing so, the voices of the farmers, industry, corporate sector, NGOs, Civil Society, scientists, teachers and, of course, students must be heard and duly internalized in the curricula.
