Dear Alumni of CAE, Coimbatore and Kumulur,

With the auspicious establishment of the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, the undergraduate programme in Agricultural Engineering was started at Coimbatore campus during 1972 as first of its kind for the southern states. Since 1977, the alumni are contributing in building the nation by spreading their role from farm to space. Presently the faculty has grown and offers three undergraduate and corresponding postgraduate programmes in two campuses and the alumni continue to spread over in all sectors.

Besides the professional contribution by the alumni, the alumni are also responsible to return to the society and alma matter. Towards this, a network among the alumni of Agricultural Engineering faculty was formed for better communication and joint efforts, which resulted in the formation of an Association - Agricultural Engineering Alumni Association, inclusive of all graduates of all programmes and both campuses. This association is registered with Registrar of the Societies, Coimbatore, with an adhoc Executive Committee.

The alumni meet proposed to be held during 17-18 December 2016 with inauguration of the association on 17.12.2016 at 11 AM is approaching. Hon. Vice-chancellor, TNAU and former Dean, Prof. R.K.Sivanappan will inaugurate the association and deliver the inaugural address and Presidential address on 17.12.2016. Following the inauguration, the meet will include sharing the experiences among the alumni, election for new Executive Committee, discussion on bylaws, planning the activities, etc.

The invitation for the alumni meet is sent herewith by attachment. This invitation may also be forwarded to other alumni friends who may may not be in the present mail list. This will strengthen our association and bring us together.

Thanking you
