B.E. Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering

About the Department

The global demand for highly-qualified instrumentation engineers in the control and automation industries is increasing day-by-day. To compensate the demand, four year B.E degree programme in Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering is established in the year 2011 with an annual intake of 60 students with the approval of AICTE. This course is affiliated to Anna University, Chennai.

Since its origin, the department maintains a team of committed and talented faculty members, who are continuously approaching the frontiers of knowledge and eminence teaching to ensure an innovative approach that keeps tempo with the changing trends in the professional world through our global perception.

This course provides students with sound theoretical knowledge & practical training in the operation and design of electronic instruments, digital logic systems, microprocessor and microcontroller system design, Process control system etc. Recently, the department has purchased 50 user license of LabVIEW software from National Instruments, USA.

The department has organized seven days ‘Faculty Development Training Program on Industrial Electronics’ sponsored by Centre for Faculty Development, Anna University, Chennai.

The department also organized two days Faculty Development Program on “Graphical System Design uses Labview” jointly with ICTACT Academy, Tamilnadu and National Instruments, Bangalore.

Mission

To impart technical knowledge and develop the next generation of engineers in the instrumentation sector by teaching them problem solving, leadership and teamwork to meet the current industrial and societal needs.

Vision

Vision is to develop and exist as a technically competent centre in the domain of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering also to cater to the needs of national and international requirements through teaching, research and consultancy.

Infrastructure

Process Control Lab

Generally, anything that requires continuous monitoring of an operation involves the role of a process engineer. The main focus of the lab is to design and implement controllers for different processes and also modeling of the process in such a way that the system provides an optimum performance.

The experiments conducted in the laboratory impart training and practical testing of the equipments which offer students the right kind of exposure and provide them ample opportunity to apply their knowledge in practical scenarios.

This provides real-time understanding of various instruments which makes them fit enough to work in industries.
