Principal G. P. Vadodaria

The Department of Instrumentation and Control Engineering was established in the year 1972. At the present department is offering B.E. course in Instrumentation and Control Engineering with intake capacity of 60 and M.E. in Applied Instrumentation with the intake capacity of 18.

Instrumentation and control engineer role is to design, develop, install, test and maintain instruments, computer control systems that are used in the process industry. With the help of automation techniques and computer-aided processes, they also control these systems. Their prime focus is to ensure that the processes operate efficiently and safely. The students passing out are having wide scope to get career opportunities in major manufacturing, process, energy, oil and natural gas industries as well as research opportunities in highly ranked institutes and universities within and outside the country. The Department has a team of well qualified, experienced and committed staff members with a strong sense of ethical and professional responsibility. The department has well-equipped with laboratories and computing facilities, with the latest technology . The department faculty work with excellent team spirit in a different technical domain like modern control, Signal Processing, Image Processing, Analog Electronics, VLSI and Embedded System, Process Control, Automation, Instrumentation which leads to good quality students projects and research publications. Department has ISA(International Society of Automation) student section to nurture technical and organizational skills among students. Students are also receiving financial support from SSIP (student startup and Innovation policy) of Govt. of Gujarat for the development of PoC( Proof of concept). Department also has strong linkages with alumni, department alumni hold senior positions in industries as well as in academic institutions, both in India and abroad.
