About the Department

Started in the year 2006, the Department of Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering is running a 4-year undergraduate programme in Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering. Since its inception, the Department has grown in leaps and bounds with the state of art infrastructure. Yokogawa Centre of Excellence, KCT-FLUKE Centre of Excellence in Calibration, Siemens PLC Automation Laboratory are some of the major centres operational in addition to Advanced Process Control and Computerised Sensors laboratories. The Department has a team of well qualified, dedicated Faculty members with vast experience in industrial and research background. The Department is involved in active Industrial consultancy services for neighbouring Industries in the field of Automation. Certified Calibration for Electro-Technical/Thermal/Pressure Instruments are some of the prominent consultancy services. Major and minor projects funded by government bodies and Industries are focused on solving industrial needs. Our association with the Professional bodies ISA, ISOI, IEEE, ISTE, IEI and CSI is playing a significant role in enriching the quality of curriculum.

Professor and Head

Electronics & Instrumentation Engineeringestablished in the year 2006 is a specialized branch of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, which focuses on the principle and operation of field instruments SCADA, DCS, PLC’S 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 and centres of excellence, which are required for the curriculum and several specialized equipment and software, which help the students to do their real time projects. We have placed our students in core industries like Yokogawa, Bosch, Data Patterns, TVS, Tesolve, 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.
