Today, we locate contraptions at home and at the workplace, which was once possible solely due to science Instrumentation. Since the instrumentation is the order of the day, it is very a lot crucial for young minds to get accustomed to the state-of-the-art traits in the instrumentation field. Moreover, Instrumentation being one of the most necessary sought branches in the Industrial factor of view, a mixture of Electronics and Instrumentation would fetch high dividends for the students who take up Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering as their profession course.

This is a multi-disciplinary move and covers subjects from a range of branches such as chemical, mechanical, electrical, electronics, biomedical and computers. This helps in making a change to different disciplines if absolutely everyone desires to after completion of the Course. Instrumentation engineering is a specialised department that deals with the measurement, manipulation and automation of processes.

Nowadays, almost all industries are automated. Automation is one of the trendy vogues in all Industries and is consequently relatively in want for expertise in the subject of Electronics and Instrumentation to acquire their requirements. Automation is the core job of instrumentation engineers. As the style of automation selections up in India and abroad, Instrumentation and Control Engineers are discovering extra and more job opportunities.

Control and Optimization is another important criterion in many Industries. Electronics and Instrumentation engineers having good exposure in these areas will be highly effective in solving various critical needs of the Industries.

An instrumentation engineer is responsible for designing, developing, installing, managing and maintaining equipment which are used to monitor and control engineering systems, machinery and processes.

Job Opportunities

Electronics and Instrumentation Engineers have a bright future ahead of them as they are needed by almost all Industries in various cadres like Design, Development, Automation, Control, Fabrication, Inspection, Quality control, Maintenance and Service and so on. Graduates from instrumentation and control programs can expect to fill positions such as:

  1. Instrument Engineer
  2. Automation Engineer
  3. Contol Engineer
  4. Instrumentation Technologists or Technician
  5. Instrument Mechanic
  6. Control Systems Technologist
  7. Process Analyzer

Salaries in the field vary depending on the position, but the average starting salary is between Rs.8,00,000 and Rs.25,00,000 a year and can increase to Rs.35,00,000 to Rs. 45,00,000 with experience.

An Instrumentation engineer has opportunities in many central government organisations like DRDO, ISRO, IOC, BARC, NTPC, Railways, BSNL, HAL, AAI, etc. Also, many core companies like Honeywell, Texas Instruments, National Instruments, ABB, Larsen & Toubro, Robert Bosch, Invensys, GE, Suzlon, Apna Technologies, Whirlybird, ESSAR, Yokogawa, Orange, LG, SAMSUNG, SONY, SANSUI, Whirlpool, Intel, Vedanta, Oil & Coal, Cadence, Cairn India, Linde, Allan Bradley, many software companies like TCS, Infosys, Wipro, CTS, HCL etc recruit these engineers.
