Instrumentation Engineering

Instrumentation engineering is a specialized branch of electrical and electronic engineering and it deals with measurement, control and automation of processes. Apart from covering core subjects such as industrial instrumentation and process control, bio-medical instrumentation and robotics, the students deal with software and hardware topics such as microprocessor and micro controller based instrumentation, VLSI and embedded system designs, computer architecture and organization and computer control of processes. Computer languages such as ‘C' and C++ are also part of the curriculum. This makes an instrumentation engineer fit for both the hardware and the software industry. Moreover, since instrumentation engineers are presumed to be good at solving problems, the analytical ability is expected to be on the higher side, which is a basic quality needed to excel in the software industry.
