Welcome to the Academic Information Website of Agricultural Engineering in Central Luzon State University. The main purpose of the site is to provide relevant information and tools for prospective and current agricultural engineering students of the Central Luzon State University. THE AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING PROGRAM @ CLSU
The Department of Agricultural Engineering traces its beginnings with the then Central Luzon Agricultural School (CLAS). It used to offer a secondary Farm Mechanics course. In June 1955, five years after the school was elevated into the Central Luzon Agricultural College (CLAC), the department was expanded to include the offering of a 4-year degree program in Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering (BSAEn). Four years later, in 1959, this curricular program was revised into a 5-year BSAEn program. In 1964, CLAC was converted into what is now known as the Central Luzon State University (CLSU). With this development, the College of Engineering was established and through its Department of Agricultural Engineering, the training of human resources vital to the development of the country’s agricultural engineering sector continues. In 1954, by virtue of Republic Act No. 1174, the Graduate School was created. The graduate program was initially handled by the Graduate and Research Department and then later by the Graduate School. It was in 1979 when it became the Institute of Graduate Studies (IGS). The IGS is engaged in the provision of advanced instruction and the promotion of research and development work in agriculture and related sciences in its continuing search for truth and upgrading sciences and technology for sustainable development and global competitiveness. The IGS offers graduate programs in coordination with various concerned colleges and their departments. In the case of the graduate programs in Agricultural Engineering, the IGS is in close partnership with the College of Engineering (CEn), particularly its Department of...
