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.
To lead the field of Instrumentation and Control engineering towards inclusive excellence through integration of teaching, learning and industry interaction, advancement of the knowledge base by multidisciplinary research, innovations, scholarships and services to the society.
Set-up a mechanism for creating better quality professionals in Instrumentation and Control Engineering to match the needs of industries. Adapt systems and methods for meaningful collaboration with stakeholders. Take-up socially relevant and nationally important issues and problems as project assignments. Inculcate creativity, entrepreneurial attitude and values amongst learners.
