Instrumentation Engineering provides students with sound theoretical and practical training in the operation and maintenance of automated process control and measurement systems used in the production of various commodities. Students will learn about pneumatic devices, control valves, various types of instruments, electronics, digital logic devices, industrial instrumentation, robotics and many more.
It is an expanding field with new innovation and technology. Opportunities in this field exist in Engineering design, Instrumentation transactions and industrial process plants in a variety of sectors like Pharmaceuticals, Oil and Gas Refineries, Automobile Plants and more.

The Department

The Department of Instrumentation, originally the university science instrumentation centre (USIC) has its origin in 1978 as a service department with the support of the UGC.It has been extending instrumentation support to science and technology departments of the university.The center was elevated to a level lll USIC by UGC in 1990.With this the centre became a full –fledged academic department. The department started a post graduate diploma course in instrumentation in 1994.In 1995 the university re organized USIC into a full-fledged teaching department with USIC contained in it and the department came into existence in its present form.

The department has a very active research programme in the area of instrumentation and applied physics.The department has implemented a number of research projects funded by DST ,DAE,UGC,AICTE,KSCSTE,etc.It has been a venue for a number of national symposia.The department has published a number of research papers pertaining to instrumentation and allied areas.
