Message from Executive Director

Prof. (Dr.) Bhagat
University Institute of Agriculture

With the advent of technology, Agriculture in India is now largely a blend of traditional knowledge refined over years coupled with growing mechanization. I am happy to share about University Institute of Agriculture Sciences (UIAS) of Chandigarh University, which blends modern agriculture education (as per fifth Dean’s Committee of ICAR) with cutting edge technology in its curriculum. We aim to produce a Human Capital trained to lead agriculture in contemporary times, when there are more challenges of uncertainty in climate, resource constraints and a burgeoning population. A pragmatic approach to Agriculture Education is our prime aim, so that the human resources that we produce can tackle farm problems both in organized (large holders) as well as in unorganized sector (small holders). Besides a robust academic programme, we have specialized trainings on farmers’ fields as well as in agri-based industries so that the students have a real world feel of problems and prospects of agriculture.
