Message from the Dean

Welcome to the Faculty of Agricultural Engineering and Technology (FAET), Sylhet Agricultural University (SAU). The Faculty was founded in 2011 to meet the increasing demand for skilled agricultural engineering graduates. Our goal is to position our engineering graduates to be problem solvers, project leaders, communicators, and ethical citizens of a global community. With a combination of expertise and innovation, the FAET seeks new approaches to some of the most critical challenges of the 21st century, thriving within the domains of Farm Mechanization, Irrigation and Water Management, Agricultural Construction, Environmental Engineering, Food Technology and application of Computer Engineering in agriculture.

The Faculty is dedicated to providing first-rate education that instills strong basic knowledge for sound practice in agricultural engineering. Through innovative curricula, a teamwork approach, and leadership-building experiences, the students gain vital communication and critical-thinking skills. Working closely within the Sylhet Agricultural University, state and industry leaders, the FAET has a clear vision of its role. We must continue to provide outstanding talents for companies engaged in the competitive global markets.

I encourage students to fully embrace and take full advantage of the rich learning environment available of FAET at SAU. For supporters and potential collaborators in industries, and elsewhere, I enthusiastically welcome your interest in the FAET. Our motto is 'Together we succeed'. I believe our clear strategy along with a strong support system, will allow the FAET to continue to grow, change, and adjust to the complex demands of the 21st century. In today's world, talented and successful engineers take on challenges that don’t fit neatly into traditional categories. Tomorrow’s engineers need the breadth of perspective, and depth of skill, to meet the challenges that lie ahead of them. We encourage you to learn about our unique cross-disciplinary approach and programs by exploring our website as well as our student-led social media channels for an inside look at the lives and times of SAU Engineers.

I am eager to build upon what this exceptional institution already did providing a lively environment for learning and discovery, sharing diverse thinking and expertise across the globe, and fostering the next generation of leaders, who understand the complexities of technology and society, to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Warm regards,


Professor Dr. Sanjida Parveen Ritu
