The Engineering Building was constructed in 1968 at a cost of $125,000 to house the faculty and staff of the Agricultural Engineering Department. The building was designed by Mr. James Sheppard, the agricultural engineering Tifton Campus department head at the time.
Many important contributions to Georgia agriculture resulted from work conducted in the Engineering Building including the first pull-behind peanut combine which is on display at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture.
The building currently houses agricultural engineers who are faculty in the Crop and Soil Sciences Department and the Entomology Department as well as post-doctoral scientists, staff, and graduate students working with these faculty. In addition, the building is home to the Georgia AgrAbility program as well as the CAES Precision Farming programs.
