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.
