Geospatial Tech. Center

Geospatial technology encompasses a broad range of modern tools including remote sensing, geographical information system, global positioning system and internet mapping applications contributing to the collection, analysis, interpretation and mapping of spatial data. Geospatial tools enable quantification of spatial and temporal variability of climate and soil conditions across regions. The technology plays an influential role in the agriculture sector by resource management, prediction of yield and improving farm practices through supporting the needs of research, teaching and extension. The Geospatial Technology Centre (GTC) was inaugurated by Sri. B. Rajasekhar, I.A.S., Special Chief Secretary, Govt. of Andhra Pradesh on June 1st, 2017 at ANGRAU, Lam, Guntur to serve multiple purposes benefitting not only the students & faculty of ANGRAU but wide range of line departments in geospatial data management.

  • COLLEGE OF HOME SCIENCE, GUNTUR


    The Faculty of Home Science has restructured its curriculum to orient the courses of UG programme to develop much required skills and self employment to enhance community development. Theprogramme is designed to encompass a unique field of knowledge with comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach from various domains. The four year undergraduate degree programme B.Sc. (Hons) Home Science with two years of core courses in Home Science subjects and two years of department specific courseswas revamped with new curriculum to offer B.Sc. (Hons) Community Science withthree years of core courses and one year of student READY programme from the academic year 2016-17.The Community Science is a holistic course which aims at all-round development of students who choose to pursue professional career in the field of community development.

    The College of Home Science that was established in the year 2013 with an intake of 25 students has enhanced its student strength to 83 from the academic year 2016-17. From the academic year 2018-19, the admission forUG programme in Community Science will be open for both boys and girls.

    The curriculum concentrates on 5 core areas (Departments)
