About the Department

With Science is constantly evolving, the applied science area is also expanding and creating more branches and Electronics and Instrumentation is one such branch. In the modern era and fast-growing age of Automation and processing industry, the Instrumentation is a pioneer field of engineering. Unfortunately, there is the huge shortage of instrumentation engineers necessitated to start the Department of Electronics and Instrumentation in 2006 and offers a 4-year degree programme

The department has a team of well qualified,  dedicated faculty members with vast experience in industrial and research background. Since its inception, the department has grown in infrastructure and dissemination of knowledge within and outside the curriculum.



The Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering (EIE) envisions a holistic education that transforms the students into responsible engineers to the industry and society. It enables them to identify significant problems and arrive at creative solutions through collaborative team efforts.



The Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering (EIE) aims to

    • Implement modern andragogical approach in academics, innovative research initiatives and collaborative projects addressing societal needs ethically.
    • Develop knowledge and skills required to excel in manufacturing, automation and allied industries globally.
    •  Expand the knowledge for higher studies and get inspired for lifelong learning.


Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)



Successfully excel in the technical and professional career with core competence in automation.


Possess the passion for their professional development by continuous learning in allied Engineering and Management fields.


Engage in resolving industrial and social issues using contemporary tools.


Exhibit professionalism and ethical attitude towards resolving automation issues to society at large.

From the HOD’s Desk 


I feel proud to introduce the Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering, one of the youngest departments of KCT established in the year 2006. Electronic Instrumentation engineering. is the specialized branch of electrical and electronic engineering, which focuses on the principle, and operation of measuring instruments and process control systems which are used in design and configuration of automated systems. These engineers work in industries with automated processes, such as chemical or manufacturing plants, with the goal of improving system productivity, reliability, safety, optimization, and stability

Within a short period, we have established all our laboratories which are required for the curriculum and also some specialized equipment and software which help the students to do their projects. We have a dedicated faculty team who strive for excellence in all what they do and help students gain knowledge by way of teaching, by demonstration, by industrial visits and by way of assignments.

Instrumentation engineering is a multi-disciplinary field wherein there is scope for students to pursue their higher studies or career in the streams of Electronics, Instrumentation or Control.

Nature of work of an instrumentation engineer ranges from designing, developing, installing, managing equipment’s that are used to monitor and control machinery and processes. We have placed our students in core industries like Bosch, TVS, Saipem, ECON, etc. Many of our alumni have successfully cracked CAT and GATE to gain entrance into the high portals of higher education. Also, we have our students pursuing their higher studies in US, UK, Germany, and Australia.

We in our department are constantly striving to update our curriculum and syllabus to incorporate technical advancements in the fields of electronics, instrumentation, and control. What we cannot accommodate in our curriculum we provide as value added the program like hands-on session/workshop/guest lectures by academicians and industry experts.

Our faculty also keep themselves updated by attending faculty development programs and by interacting with industry personnel.

As Scott Adams rightly puts it “Engineers like to solve problems. If there are no problems handily available they will create their own problems”, we try to instill confidence in our students to search for problems in industries and try to give solutions for it.
