      Electronics And Instrumentation Engineering FaQs

      The scope of this particular Electronics and Instrumentation branch is vast and it bridges almost all the branches of engineering. All manufacturing industries such as steel, oil, petrochemical, power and Defense production of instruments are managed by instrumentation engineers. The growth in the avionics, aeronautical and space science sectors has also increased the scope for instrumentation engineers. Instrumentation engineers can also fit in both the software and hardware sectors. Students can avail jobs in PSUs, Core companies, Govt. Sector and Software companies.
      •  If a student clears and gets a good score in GATE , they will have opportunities for PSU, like BPCL, etc., a pure instrumentation job. They can appear in the Staff Selection Commission exam for Junior Engineers in the Electrical field, this exam is conducted every year. Also they can apply for Junior Engineer and Senior Section Engineer jobs in railways, vacancies for which keep coming from time to time they should keep checking for it.
      • If the students are good with the basics of engineering, they can take the Indian Engineering Services exam conducted by UPSC. This exam is also conducted every year by UPSC and this is a class A job.

      The course covers basics of electronics, digital electronics, communication engineering and instrumentation. It covers the basics of measurements. Transducers, design of transmitters, in depth study of control systems, process control, Neural networks, fuzzy logic and some ethical and management papers.

      In the automation sector, in plant maintenance, in plant control of various manufacturing and production Industries, power plants, petrol and oil refineries.
      The Instrumentation engineers are highly preferred in both the product sector and service sector of the IT industry because the branch is of interdisciplinary nature and the students are being exposed to all major core engineering.
      Most of the classes are practical and Discussion based. Faculty delivers lectures and discusses it with students while taking classes both offline and online.
      Definitely we encourage students to form study groups to discuss the course content and implement any research based projects for competition.
