Agricultural engineering is concerned with the application and dissemination of engineering and scientific theories and the development of modern technology methods in the fields of agriculture, water, food and the environment. Agricultural engineering aims at the optimal scientific use of farming patterns and methods, which increases the agricultural area, improves agricultural production, and ensures food security and community progress.

The Department of Agricultural Engineering was established at the Faculty of Agriculture and Natural Resources – Aswan University in 2014, with two faculty members assisted by only one teaching assistant.
