ELECTRONICS AND INSTRUMENTATION ENGINEERING
Instrumentation is the branch of engineering that deals with measurement and control. In this fully automated world, this course which is a complete blend of technical subjects involving both Electronics and Instrumentation areas seems to find its own place in providing the students with adequate knowledge and expertise.Electronics being the order of the day, it is very much necessary for the young minds to get accustomed with the latest developments in Electronics field. Moreover a combination of Electronics and Instrumentation would fetch high dividends for the students who take up Electronics and Instrumentation as their career course.With the increasing demand for instrumentation engineers, the Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering was started in 1998 and has been producing resourceful engineers for the past ten years. The department has been accredited by AICTE, New Delhi. The department has obtained two AICTE grants in the last five years for Establishment and Modernization of Laboratories. The department has been blessed with well-experienced and highly-motivated faculty members. In the academic research, most of faculty members of the department are involved in research work in emerging areas which is the major strength of the department. The department primly focuses on areas like microprocessors, micro-controllers, Telecommunication, Robotics, Biomedical, digital signal processing, transducers and measurement , Computer Control in Process applications, virtual instrumentation etc.
Practical knowledge being the most vital part of education the department trains the students in the well-equipped laboratories like Electronics lab, transducers and measurements lab, process –control, automation lab, micro-controllers and micro-processors lab. All the labs are well equipped with state- of- the- art equipment and latest software packages like MATLAB, PLC, P-SPICE and LabVIEW for the accessibility of students.
The department conducts career development programs with objective of improving the communication skills, personality development, and tips for facing the interview, technical writing etc. by inviting external expert lectures. As a result of this effort, the students are faring well in the campus interviews and University Examinations. The department monitors the student's progress regularly and providing necessary counseling at various levels towards achieving better results.
The students are encouraged to take active part in cultural programs, seminars, paper presentation, quiz programs, sports, etc. The department also understands the importance of practical exposure to students and periodically arranged industrial visits and implant training in industries under various domains. The department has also conducted one International conference on Nano and Micro-electronics during Jan 2008 and one National conference on Control, Instrumentation, measurement and automation during Feb. 2008.
