Academics > ME- Instrumentation Engineering
  • Course Overview
    A instrumentation engineer is responsible for designing, developing, installing, managing and/or maintaining equipment which is used to monitor and control engineering systems, machinery and processes. Instrumentation is the specialized branch of electrical and electronic engineering.
    Instrumentation Engineering focuses on the principle, and operation of measuring instruments, which are used in design and configuration of automated systems. Instrumentation Engineers help in the designing, construction and maintenance of instruments and entire instrumentation systems of an industrial undertaking. Individuals with interests in research areas can pursue PhD after his/her post graduation studies for carrying out research works.
    The course provides building mathematical concepts of object modeling, rendering and display of objects and focuses on establishing the kinematic relations among various objects, so that systems can be defined, modeled and simulated. The course has lab with tools developing mechanical components, optical systems, electronic circuits and mixed systems.
