More about automation
Automatic control of processes is not only limited to aeroplanes or the manufacturing industry. These days almost every other field has applications based on automation. Automatically opening doors and automatic temperature control by an air-conditioner are also examples of automation. From food processing plants, distilleries, chemical plants, oil refineries, assembly lines to nuclear power stations, most industries and sectors are getting automated. The aim of these automatic control systems is to improve upon the productivity, efficiency, reliability and safety of the system. All these automation is possible because of instrumentation and control engineering.
About the course
Through this course you learn to design, develop and maintain a control system using necessary instrumentation. You learn about topics on industrial instrumentation, system dynamics, control system and process control. Knowledge of certain programming skills is also imparted through this course. As far as instrumentation is concerned, it is the science of measurement of a variety of process variables, such as pressure, temperature, humidity, RPM, force, etc. You also learn about the control systems through which the processes get feedback and the whole process gets controlled automatically.
The job prospects in this field are improving because more and more industries are getting automated. Instrumentation and control engineers have employment opportunities in fields such as aviation, aerospace, manufacturing industries, railways, oil and gas, power generation, pharmaceuticals and wherever there is scope for automation. For a research based career, you have the option of joining M.Tech and P.hD courses.
