About The College of Engineering

Since its establishment in China over 60 years ago, the College of Engineering at Nanjing Agricultural University continues to lead at the forefront of teaching and research in agricultural engineering. We take immense pride in our outstanding reputation, and the incredible impact that our contributions have made on the industry.

Through the delivery of one of China’s most esteemed agricultural engineering courses, we produce people who inspire technological advancements and influential research projects, whilst continuously developing the skills of some of the country’s foremost agricultural engineers. 

Our highly collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to research covers an ever-growing range of topics, and we are constantly working with our industrial partners to improve the impact of our research and the relevance of our teaching.

As our reputation continues to grow, so does our institution. In an effort to continue to offer the high quality of academic and research excellence for which we have become renowned, we are looking to recruit talented professors, lecturers and associate lectures into the five departments that bring together the key branches of engineering.

Home to a post-doctoral research station, a key discipline doctoral base for agricultural engineering and a provincial laboratory of agricultural technology and engineering, the College of Engineering at Nanjing Agricultural University offers excellent research facilities, and a fantastic environment in which to develop a rewarding academic career in agricultural engineering.

Campus & Facilities

We are based at the Pukou campus of NAU between the Yangtze River and Lao Mountain. The beautiful landscape, spacious surroundings and tranquil atmosphere of our campus make it the ideal place to teach and learn.

Our attractive campus is home to state-of-the-art equipment and teaching and research facilities. While our base in the Nanjing Jiangbei District provides a great place to live and work, offering modern city living in an area rich with history.
