Faculty of Agriculture and Allied Sciences (FAAS), Bhubaneswar, is the brain child of our Hon’ble President under the aegis of C.V. Raman Global University, and has been operational since academic year 2020-21seeking a unique and entrepreneurial outlook for Agricultural Education.
In the field of agriculture, scientific research and technological advances are constantly progressing. Farmers are under constant distress due to unforeseen environmental changes and crop stresses. The transfer of knowledge and technologies from research laboratories & institutes to farmers’ fields is warranted. Apparently, there is a growing thrust on blended agricultural education system with more participatory devolutions as mentioned in New Education Policy 2020.
Understanding current industry needs, FAAS has designed an efficient agricultural education curriculum as per the guidelines of ICAR. We are providing an efficient platform and blended learning experience where knowledge, resources and opportunities meet.
