About School of Agricultural Sciences and Technology (SAST)

School of Agricultural Sciences and Technology (SAST), Shirpur is the first School of Agriculture under SVKM’s NMIMS, and is operational since academic year 2019-20.

It’s a ubiquitous fact that the history of farming is as old as human existence. There is a continuous progress in scientific research and technological advances in the field of agriculture. Due to unforeseen environmental variations and stresses on crop plants, farmers are under constant distress. Hence, the transfer of knowledge and technologies from research laboratories & institutes to farmers’ fields is warranted. Apparently, there is a growing thrust on concerted agricultural education system with more participatory devolutions.

Keeping all concerns into consideration, SAST has designed an efficient and robust agricultural education curriculum as per the guidelines of ICAR. We are providing an efficient platform where knowledge, resources and opportunities meet. Prospective graduates will be taught various basics, fundamentals, advances, recent trends, practical adoptions, bottlenecks and sustainable solutions as a part of courses and syllabi pertaining to agricultural sciences and allied subjects. Our graduates would be kept abreast with on-going research projects and farm business models in India and abroad.

We train and develop dynamic entrepreneurs who wish to take up farming and value addition of farm produce for enhancing the profitability. We involve our students in revolving fund projects wherein they gain expertise beyond academics such as project planning and implementation which helps them to transform themselves into confident Agripreneurs. We have state-of-the-art infrastructure and intellectual legacy for making classroom and practical learning more enjoyable and intriguing. In our team, we draw intellectually acclaimed faculty and guest faculty for teaching.

SAST is one of the most ambitious educational initiatives of NMIMS and is situated on banks of Tapti river in Dhule district of Maharashtra. SAST is a residential campus with ancient Gurukul concept wherein students, faculty and agriculture co-exist. We are committed to bring in a prosperity to the lives of farming communities in this region. We aim to establish knowledge hubs and innovation hubs for local enthusiasts for bringing adoptable technologies to earn more income.

NMIMS’s SAST is focused to give an extra mile to knowledge and career of graduates because we help them thinking both critically and creatively, and to express with energy, precision, and dynamism.
