Courses

B.E (Fisheries Engineering) Degree Programme

Scope of the programme

The following services of fisheries engineering are needed to cope-up with the emerging trends in fisheries sector.

  • Design and construction of hi-tech aquaculture farms, multiplication and nucleus breeding centres, hatcheries and fish farm structure for efficient use of resources.
  • Design and maintenance aquaculture parks.
  • Design and fabrication of equipment and machinery for use in aquaculture farms taking into consideration the nature and dynamics of the systems.
  • Application of engineering principles in aquaculture production systems and maintenance of water quality using computer simulation.
  • Aquaculture effluent treatment and waste recycling.
  • Evolving improve fish processing techniques and machinery to preserve quality and to avoid wastage of fish.
  • Refrigeration engineering and improved methods of packaging.
  • Construction and maintenance of fish landing centres and fishing harbours.
  • Construction and management of fish processing plants, fish processing parks, cold storage structure, fish feed mills and ice plants.
  • Design of fishing crafts, fishing gears and fish traps for improving fishing operations.
  • Application of electronic gadgets in navigation, sea safety and fishing.
  • Engineering inputs in cold chain management.
  • Costal engineering management.
  • Design and development of machinery for novel fishery products
