School Of Agriculture

School of Agriculture has been established in Abhilashi University under the Faculty of Science in 2014. After going through common and elective courses in Agriculture during the degree programme, we have in the course curriculum an exposure of the students in complete rural settings where the students will go and live along with farm families in the villages and have the first-hand experience of their living, agricultural practices, difficulties and expectations. Students will be attached to an agriculture-based industry to acquaint themselves with post-harvest processing of agriculture produce and link agriculture production with industry. The student shall also be registered for opting for two modules for skill development and entrepreneurship. 

The school has highly qualified teachers, well-equipped laboratories, classrooms and well laid out terraced student’s farm representing typical hilly terrain. Occasional snowfall during the winter adds to the beauty of the university campus and places it at a location that is marginal to temperate as well as sub-tropical agro climatic conditions, thus enabling teaching and research under both the situations.
