A specialised branch, instrumentation has its roots in electrical and electronics engineering. Electronics and instrumentation engineering primarily concerns with measuring instruments, controls and automated systems. It forms the basis for specialised branches such as robotics and mechatronics. In manufacturing, by using measuring and control devices, a system is created such that every system and function takes place safely and optimally. A postgraduate course in this field gets you a better understanding of the subjects and helps you in your career growth. Although there are various postgraduate options in this field, this postgraduate diploma course is of immense benefit to those who are already in the work field and are not in a position to devote time for a full time M.Tech program.
Eligibility and course duration
You should be a graduate in engineering, preferably in fields related to electronics and instrumentation.
Duration of this PG Diploma course is 1 year.
More about this field
With rapid advancement in electronics and its related fields, the applications of instrumentation engineering has been spreading increasingly in diverse fields such as manufacturing, production, aviation, aerospace, robotics, etc. As an engineer in this field you learn to design, develop, install and manage equipment to monitor and control processes in any of the above fields. In most manufacturing plants and in research environments, measuring and control devices form the integral part of an automated system. To keep up with the latest development one has to also have a good understanding of both software and hardware topics like computer control of processes, microprocessors and micro controller based instrumentation. Learning computer programming languages is also an essential requirement. Having an analytical mind helps.
There are wide possibilities of job in this field in both the private as well as the public sector companies. Top PSUs like BEL, BHEL, NTPC, ONGC and others regularly employ professionals from this field for their manufacturing units and sites. Multinational companies like Texas Instruments, Cadence Design Systems, Siemens, CAIRN India and others are also hot places to work for in this field. Electronics and instrumentation engineers can also get into IT related jobs. There are also options to go for further your education in this field if you can afford the time and effort. M.S. or M.Tech in Applied Electronics and Instrumentation and Ph.D are some such options. This you can pursue either in India or abroad.
