Department of Agricultural Engineering

     Department “Agricultural engineering” was created in Sofia as an independent department in the Zootechnics faculty on the basis of the already existing shared department “Mechanization of the agriculture” in the Faculty of Agronomy. Founder and first head of the department is assoc. prof. engineer Nikola Stanishev. The relocation of the department in Stara Zagora was done in 1975. After that the department grew and developed both in teaching staff and in necessary equipment.
