Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering is a specialized branch of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and it deals with measurement, control and automation of processes. Apart from covering course subjects such as industrial instrumentation, Process control, Biomedical instrumentation, this branch also covers software and hardware subjects which are learnt by electronics and communication students. This makes an Instrumentation engineer fit for both software and hardware industries. Hence “Instrumentation Technology” has now been renamed as “Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering”.
The department of Instrumentation Technology was started in the year 1982 with the intake of 40 with clear vision to meet the challenges of the society of this region. The intake is enhanced to 60 from the academic year 2017-18. The department is also running a PG course in Biomedical Electronics & Industrial Instrumentation. The department has been identified as research center by VTU Belagavi. Eleven candidates are pursuing PhD in the department. The department has highly skilled and qualified staff and has good infrastructure with well equipped laboratories. The department has been organizing several Faculty Development Programs, National seminars, Workshops etc. The department has organized an International Conference on "Current Research & Applications in Electrical Science" (ICCRAES-2016) on Oct 4th & 5th-2016. Recently department has organised a Faculty Development Programme on "An insight to Biomedical Instrumentation, Biomedical signal and Image processing with Hands on experience and Lab view programming” on dated 02-08-2021 to 06-08-2021. It has been tradition of the department to fetch state level recognition from the organization like KSCST for the projects undertaken by the students.
The department is also conducting certified LabVIEW and PLC training's which is helping in placement of the students. In this regard the department has made MOU's with various industries . A large number of alumni of this department have been placed in many industries, R & D laboratories, Software companies and premier institutions in India and abroad.
To be excellent in imparting engineering education and research in the field of Electronics and Instrumentation to serve the needs of industry and society .
