Purpose: Agricultural Machinery Department was established in 1983 and is consist of two main subsections as Agricultural Machinery and Energy Using in agriculture. There are 8 professors, 1 associate professor, 6 research assistant and 1 teaching assistant in the department.The application workshops and laboratory of the department are engine and electrification application workshop, mechanic technology workshop, trailer test device, soil canal test device, agricultural machinery test laboratory, irrigation pumps test laboratory, crop drying laboratory, hydraulic and pneumatic laboratory and biological material test laboratory. The aim of the department is educating qualified engineers at undergraduate and graduate level for designing, developing, ing and management of Agricultural Machinery. Furthermore, making experimental analysis of agricultural machines according to international standards and organizing national and international congress are the activities of the department.

Vision: Always providing to be a student of Selcuk University Agricultural Machinery Department preferable and contributing to national development with producted new information and technologies is the vision of the department.

Mission: To educate agricultural engineers that equipped with enough knowledge of agriculture and agricultural technology, can work on design, production, application and R&D activities in agriculture industry, agricultural machinery industry and research institutes, is creative, has tematic approach to problem solving, is sensitive to environment, has social and professional ethical consciousness and responsibility.
