Aims

The Mission of AfroAgEng is to promote and advance the profession of agricultural engineering in Africa. The Society also seeks to become a key knowledge partner and visible policy advocate on the role of engineering and technology in the transformation and industrialisation of agriculture in Africa towards Agenda 2063 and beyond – the Africa We Want.

 

The Objectives of the Society include:

  • Raise awareness about the critical role of engineering and technological innovations in agriculture and related bio-based industries in Africa
  • Promote curriculum reform and academic mobility among agricultural engineering programmes
  • Facilitate the exchange and sharing of information on the different aspects of agricultural and bioresources engineering
  • Assist individual members to develop their professional knowledge, skills and network through information exchange
  • Promote and support a network of young agricultural engineers as the pipeline for future leadership in the discipline and profession
  • Promote greater engagement between the academic discipline, professional practice and industries serving agriculture, including manufacturers
  • Represent the profession at continental and global levels
  • Participate in the affairs and promote the activities of the CIGR in Africa

 

To achieve these, the Society will be active in organising and supporting networking events such as conferences, workshop, seminars and symposia on current and emerging issues facing engineering and technology in agriculture, and related publications.
