Instrumentation and control engineering play a vital role in any modern industry. In recent years, Instrumentation the world over has made unprecedented growth in terms of new technologies, new ideas and principles. The rate of obsolescence of technologies also has been extremely high. Researchers, academicians, industries and the society at large have to work in unison to meet the challenges of the rapidly growing discipline. The research organizations and industries that work in this frontier area are in need of highly skilled and scientifically oriented manpower. This manpower can be available only with flexible, adaptive and progressive training programs.
The competition due to globalization has resulted in better process control, optimum utilization of resources & higher level of automation in all industry sectors. The demand for automation is increasing day by day. To face these challenges, competent Instrumentation engineers are required. A highly interdisciplinary branch covers major aspects of chemical, mechanical, electronics and electrical fundamentals.
We aim at producing talented Instrumentation and control specialists who provide the needs of the modern industries. With a perfect blend of industrial exposure, coupled with good technical base, our students will make their presence felt in various technological domains in all the top-level industries. The department focuses on preparing the students to meet global industrial challenges. The ultimate goal is to make them aware of the recent advances taking place in the technological field.
The department boasts qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty to impart fundamental and applied knowledge in the field of Industrial Automation, Process Control, Instrumentation Systems Design and Biomedical Instrumentation. The department offers excellent infrastructure and resources in the form of knowledgeable faculty and well equipped laboratories.
The students of this department have brought several laurels to this institute by actively participating and winning several technical completion, sport and cultural events at university, national and international level.

This lab mainly deals with different sensors, transducers, bridges and also the various types of meters primarily used for industrial applications. Experiments are mainly on measurement of industrial parameters like level, acceleration, pressure flow, torque, displacement etc.
Measurement Laboratory is equipped with modern measurement instrumentation equipments, which helps the students to study different mechanism of measurement. Students learn to measure as well as develop the skill to calibrate the level sensor, load sensor, displacement transducer.
The aim of this lab is to fortify the students with an adequate work experience in the measurement of different quantities and also the expertise in handling the instruments involved.
The purpose of Measurement Lab is to learn about some of the basic instrumentation used to operate modern test and measurement systems.
Process Control Lab
The Process Control Lab aims at training the students in the field of Process Instrumentation, control and optimization.
This laboratory is to impart the practical knowledge about various process control techniques used in modern process industries. This laboratory is equipped with process simulation kit with feed forward ,ratio and cascade control schemes, electronic logic controllers, electronic transmitter , recorders, DCS, PLC controllers, PID controller trainer kit to carry out advanced experiments in process control engineering. The setupes are meant for understanding fundamentals characteristics of continuous, discrete and batch process control, to evaluate the tuning of a PID control via manual and automatic tuning.
Basic Electronics Lab
This laboratory is to impart the basic knowledge of different electronic components, its characteristics and devices, to gain practical knowledge in the area of power electronic components and their applications. This laboratory is equipped with various modules for characteristic curve analysis of power electronic components (viz. diac, triac, thyristors and UJTs) and experimental setup of converters, inverters, choppers and speed control of dc motors. To study the experiments on linear and digital IC application circuits designing
Control System Lab
Control lab is the integral part of any curriculum related to instrumentation engineering. This laboratory was established to make students aware about basic fundamentals of control system and its component in process control. Various control viz. closed loop control, PLC control are simulated/practically implemented to give student a better understanding. Besides this, advanced hydraulic trainer kit and pneumatic trainer kit give inside view of hydraulic and pneumatic control principles. Controller Modules are procured in laboratory to demonstrate various controller configurations.Study the installed characteristics of a valve, Calibrate the control valve. Understand the dynamic behavior of the system.
Instrumentation System Design Lab
Aim to establish this laboratory is to give basic information to students regarding identification and checking of various passive circuit elements. It is also used to provide a platform for the assembly work, components testing and troubleshooting to carry out their projects using the different components and devices. The work can also be done for fault-finding and rectification of various instruments.
This laboratory is to provide the computational facilities to the students. This Lab is for preparing different prototype models based upon MATLAB, LABVIEW and many other software packages. All types of simulations in continuous and discrete domain can be performed on MATLAB. Here we apply theory to real situations and demonstrate the limitations of theory. Students recognize accurate terminology to describe hardware, software, multimedia devices, and to identify the basic functions of technology resources commonly used in early elementary classrooms.
This lab includes the experiments based on modern day medical applications and also includes analysis of chemical compositions by different analytical instruments like refractometer calorimeter and flame photometer
Biomedical engineering is an emerging area and exposure to different instruments of biomedical will be a great help to the students. To study different systems in human body like cardiovascular, nervous system. Students get familiar with diagnostic instruments like ECG, EEG, EMG and therapeutic instruments like defibrillator, pacemaker etc. Students can develop projects/dissertations in the bioelectrical signal-processing.

Departmental Activities News Letters
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.
