About Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering

Brief Into about Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering

The Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering was started in the academic year 1997-1998.

Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering is a multi-disciplinary stream that covers subjects from various branches such as chemical, mechanical, electrical, electronics, biomedical and computers. The course is framed with specialisation towards robotics and industrial automation. Automation is one of the few fields where the demand for skilled talent is rapidly growing. There is a growing demand for individuals in the field of Industrial Automation with an emphasis on Robotics, Distributed Control System and Programmable Logic Controllers. This program will prepare individuals to competitively challenge for a variety of positions in the automation and control systems field. Typical fields of employment include R&D units, oil refineries, power plants, steel plants, fertiliser plants, automobile, biomedical, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, food industries and petrochemical industries.

Graduates will develop practical skills and understanding of the processes and methods that are applied to develop and implement an industrial automation. Graduates fill job positions such as: Instrument Engineer, Automation Engineer, Control Engineer, Instrumentation Technologist, Control Systems Technologist, Automation Specialist, Robotics Engineer etc.

The salient features of the department are,

  • Core and Software industry based curriculum
  •  Strong base in automation using PLCs, DCS & SCADA
  •  Hands-on experience in well-equipped labs
  •  Specialized in Robotics Engineering
  • Professional membership with ISA and ISTE
