This is as result of its contemporary innovations as well as the high spirited graduate the institution has produced. In other to sustain this temple as the best among its peers, as well as further aggrandize and strengthen the vision of the institution, the department of Agricultural and Bio-Environmental Engineering was established in the year 2015. Agricultural and Bio-Environmental Engineering is the engineering discipline that applies engineering science and technology to agricultural production and processing. Because of the important of food to the existence of man, the role which the Agricultural and Bio-Environmental Engineer plays to any nation cannot be over-emphasized. The five major specializations in Agricultural and Bio-Environmental Engineering are Farm Power and Machinery; Irrigation and Drainage; Soil and Water Conservation; Crop Processing and Storage; Farm Structure and Environment. The department also has it new curriculum structured in line with the provision of the National Policy on Education (NPE) and with robust credit units that allows its students to diversify and cope with other related engineering disciplines in their future career. The first, second and third sets of 25, 29, 46, students were admitted for the 2015/2016, 2016/2017, 2017/2018 sessions respectively through JAMB.

The department is blessed with dynamic and competent academic staff, spread across the various areas of specializations. It is also equipped with state of the art equipment and facilities spread across the various areas of specializations to aid effective teaching and research. In recent years, members of staff have been undergoing various trainings, workshops and conferences so as to improve their academic and technical prowess. To this effect, the department through members of staff has conducted a number of researches that is aimed towards addressing contemporary needs of the farmers within and outside the host communities.
