Instrumentation & Control is the art and science of measurement and control of industrial variables within a production or manufacturing area. It is a multidisciplinary branch which is fusion of electrical, chemical, mechanical, electronics, communication and computer engineering. The process variables used in industries like Level, Pressure, Temperature, Humidity, Flow, pH, Force, Speed etc. It applies control theory to design systems with desired behaviors. Instrumentation & Control engineer plays vital role in the research, design, development and control devices/systems, typically in manufacturing facilities and plants.
The department is started with UG in 1985 and PG with specialization in Process Instrumentation in 2002 to fulfill burning requirement of technical manpower for industries. Department has well equipped UG and PG laboratories. Research and consultancy is the prime activity in the department. Faculties have published and presented research papers in conference/ journals at national and international levels.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

 

In all industry sectors the competition due to globalization has resulted in higher level of automation for better process control and optimum utilization of recourses. To face these challenges the competent instrumentation engineers are required. It is a highly interdisciplinary branch which covers major aspects of electrical, chemical and mechanical fundamentals. Instrumentation and Control involves the application of instruments for measurement and control. Design of instruments and their applications are the two inherent aspects in the Instrumentation. Further the installation, commissioning, and maintenance of the instrumentation system are an integral part of this branch.

 

 

The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) of the Instrumentation and Control are:

 

  1. 1. To Provide Students with the strong foundation in Mathematical, Scientific and   Engineering fundamentals necessary to formulate, solve and analyze engineering problems related to industry and research.
  1. 2. To impart the state of the art technology to the students in the field of Instrumentation and Control Engineering

 

  1. 3. To promote innovation, invention and entrepreneurship by enabling the  students to transform their ideas to proof-of-concepts for high-tech applications
  1.  
  2. 4. To Provide opportunity for the students to work as part on multidisciplinary project
  1. 5. To inculcate in the students professional and ethical attitude, Communication skills and the lifelong learning skills needed for the successful professional career.

 

Programmed Specific Outcomes (PSO)

 

  1. PSO1: Ability to identify and rectify industrial problems with application software.
  2. PSO2: Ability to plan, design, implements and analyze prototype process systems.
PSO3: Graduate Engineer will pursue higher studies and research at national/International level
