To be an outstanding and internationally recognized educational institution that provides qualified engineering and management, and environmental management and technology.
The DAT's missions are to carry out qualified education, research, and community service in the field of agro-industrial technology and management, focusing on:
Continuous improvement in educational quality including human resources, physical facility, and services in order to produce qualified graduates.
Strengthening research link and match between university and industry in order to develop agroindustrial, science, and cutting-edge technology.
Intensification and extending the community development activities emphasizing on the entrepreneurship development for small and medium scale agro-industry.
The Curriculum and the Divisions
The curriculum prepares graduates with the ability to design, develop, implement, control, evaluate, and improve the system performance of sustainable agroindustry, through an integrated approach of the transformation process, system engineering, industrial management, and environmental aspects to increase the added value of agricultural/bio-based resources and their derivatives. The university set the mandate of the DAT which is "the development of science and technology in the field of agro-industry including industrial engineering and management, process and bioprocess technology, and technical and industrial environmental management".
The DAT is supported by seven divisions (Scientific Laboratories) which have specific mandate and scope, both in the field of education, research, and community development. The seven divisions namely,
Industrial System Engineering
Industrial Business and Application
Packaging, Storage, and Transportation System
Industrial Environmental Management and Engineering
Implementation of international programs in agroindustrial technology to produce graduates who are able to expand their knowledge and skills in accordance with the needs of agro-industry development in global competition.
Become an international learning institution for agroindustry through networking with the internationally recognized educated institutions.
Strengthen networking through student and staff exchange, internship and international conference or symposium, international joint research, and collaboration.
Provide opportunities for local and foreign students to study agroindustry.
