Department of Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering is an advanced branch which deals with the application of existing scientific knowledge in electronics, instrumentation, measurements, control and automation of processes. Started in the year 2002, the Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering is running a four-year undergraduate program accredited by NBA. From inception, the department has grown in leaps and bounds with the state of art of infrastructure and lab facilities. The program provides an opportunity to learn technical skills thereby enhancing their technical competency and leadership qualities. The graduates are having wide scope to get career opportunities in major process, energy, oil and natural gas industries as well as research opportunities in highly ranked institutes and universities within and outside the country.
Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering (EIE)
Message from HOD
Professor and Head, Dept of Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering
People relying on yesterday’s idea have no chance of survival in today’s competitive environment where change is at the speed of thought. The pace of change requires continuous improvement and constant learning. Keeping this in mind, we train our students to be fully prepared for the challenges of the future.
Why EIE at Velammal Engineering College?
⦁ A VEC-NI Center of Excellence is constructed with the worth Rs. 70 Lakhs.
⦁ The Department has produced 165 University Ranks including 4 Gold medals
⦁ The Department has produced several professionals working in prestigious organizations such as Intel (USA), leading core, Public sectors and IT Companies.
⦁ The department has state of the art infrastructural facilities that include laboratory equipment worth Rs.1.91Crores.
⦁ The department has well experienced faculty members, of whom 5 are doctorates in the field of sensor design, process control, network automation and power electronics. 2 faculty are pursuing Ph.D. in the field of machine learning and VLSI design. Remaining 2 faculties are Post Graduates.
⦁ Faculty members of the department have completed DST / AICTE Funded Research Projects worth of Rs.1.74 Crores and Rs.1.04 Crores worth of research projects are in progress.
Electronics and instrumentation is a specialized discipline and versatile program has its important role in modern industrial scenario. In the modern era Electronics and instrumentation is treated as integral part of all engineering operations. The program is designed in such a way that it covers various essential aspects of electrical, mechanical, chemical, computer science engineering and thus the instrumentation engineers exist to be with knowledge
The Pillars of EIE

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.
