About Department 

Department of Irrigation and Drainage Engineering was established during the year 1992. It offers M. Tech. (Agricultural Engg.) in Irrigation and Drainage Engg. degree with intake capacity of five students every year excluding ICAR nominees. It also offers Ph. D. (Agricultural Engg.) in Irrigation and Drainage Engg. degree with intake capacity of three students every year.

Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola was established in the year 1969 with mandate of agricultural education, research, extension education and seed production. The department of Irrigation and Drainage Engineering looks after the education, research and extension related to irrigation and drainage engineering. The rainfall in vidarbha varies from 700 to 1300 mm. It is more in eastern Vidarbha than western Vidarbha. The percent irrigated area of vidarbha is 11%, but it is very less in western vidarbha. So the main focus is on research and extension so as to have better water management practices with perspective of more crop per drop. Various water saving techniques like micro-irrigation are demonstrated to farmers. The department has till now produced 90 M.Tech. students and 04 Ph.D. students.
