CEAT’s research and extension units are the Center for Agri-Fisheries and Biosystems Mechanization (BIOMECH) and the Agricultural Machinery Testing and Evaluation Center (AMTEC). These units are strengthened by Republic Act 10601 (AFMech Law), which promotes the development and adoption of modern, appropriate cost-effective, and environmentally safe agricultural and fisheries machinery and equipment to enhance farm productivity and efficiency in order to achieve food security and safety, and increase income.
BIOMECH and AMTEC provide a conducive environment for local assembling and manufacturing of engines, machinery and equipment for agricultural and fisheries production, processing, and marketing. They support instruction by providing research opportunities to CEAT faculty, students, and staff for the improvement of agri-fisheries Research and Development (RDE) sector and to address to major RDE mechanization challenges on food security, energy sustainability, environment protection, and climate change.
CEAT provides valuable and timely information and technical support in the field of agricultural mechanization and structures, agricultural processing, land and water resources, farm power, renewable energy, biofuels, and chemical engineering.
