Instrumentation & Control Engineering
Measurement and control are two parameters which are critical to the smooth functioning of any system, especially the process industries. To serve the industry with highly knowledgeable and skilled engineers, Instrumentation & Control Engineering (I&CE) Department was established in the year 1985. With a vision to produce technocrats in the field of process control and instrumentation, the department has enabled its students, who are now working at many prestigious firms and proving their mettle.
The Department - At a Glance
Highly skilled and knowledgeable faculty members with two doctorates, eight postgraduates and a graduate
The faculty members have participated in national and international workshops, and paper presentations at numerous technical forums
Majority of the students are placed in prominent blue chip companies
For the benefit of students under TEQIP World Bank scheme, the Department has introduced new laboratories in the field of Bio-medical Instrumentation, Distributed Control System (DCS), Industrial Electronics, Power Electronics, Communication Technique and Process Control
Department also holds ADAM's card for SCADA system along with other sophisticated equipment like Computerised process control trainer, Process instrument trainer, Microcontroller trainer with interfacing modules, Industrial electronic trainers, PID controller trainer and Peak controller trainer kit
Various industrial visits are also organised for providing practical exposure to the students
Adding to its pride, the department also runs student sections of ISA (Instrumentation Systems and Automation society), which is a USA-based professional society, for the growth and development of the students in accordance with their peers in different parts of the world
Under these sections, students are acquainted with new developments in automation engineering by various subject workshops and exhaustive expert lecture series
The department owns licensed copy of many highly expensive software in the field of instrumentation like LABVIEW, MOKSHA and WONDERWARE SCADA, to name a few
An excellent placement cell which looks after the placement activities and works on the personality development of students. In fact, the cell takes care of the overall development of students apart from academics
The department moulds the students keeping in mind, the needs of industry as well as the needs of society, and thereby reinforcing that at DDU, we not only make good engineers, but also good human beings
The department is fully equipped with the latest equipment and world class instruments to keep pace with recent developments in the field of instrumentation
