- Farm Power and Machinery.
- Soil and water Conservation and Management Engineering (including watershed management, command area development, conservation, irrigation and field drainage).
- Irrigation (including surface and ground water development).
- Agricultural Process Engineering.
- Farm Storage Engineering.
- Farm Buildings and Structures.
