The Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering was established in 1984.This Department came out as an offspring of Electronics Engineering due to enormous development in the field of Electronics and demand of Instrumentation Engineers in the city and its vicinity. Equipped with modern sophisticated instruments, it offers Under Graduate course (B.E. Programme). An M. Tech. course in Microelectronics VLSI Design was started by this Department in 2002. The faculty is well qualified to accept the new challenges in the Electronics and Instrumentation field. The Department has been recognized as a centre to conduct short term Programme for teaching faculty in the PC based Electronics Instrumentation under UGC vocational courses. New ventures for research and product development in the area of Biomedical and Optical Engineering are being set up under MHRD schemes. Department is also running Special Manpower Development Programme (SMDP) in VLSI Design funded by ministry of Information and Communication Technology, Govt. of India. Department received a grant of Rs.55 Lacs for first phase from 1999 to 2005, a grant of Rs. 1 crore 10 Lacs for second phase from 2005 to 2013 and a grant of Rs. 1 crore 66 Lacs for third phase from 2014 to 2019. Department has setup two VLSI Design Laboratory under this project. Faculty members of the Department have taken training at various IITs, IISc, IIMs and CEERI Pilani under this VLSI project. Under this project, the Department received state of art software’s like Cadence, Synopsis, Mentor Graphics
The department is committed to provide a holistic education that transforms the students into responsible engineers and facilitates them to build successful careers and excel in the field of Electronics and Instrumentation with social and ethical standards.
To prepare emerging Electronics and Instrumentation engineers to possess good communication skills with the ability to work in multi-disciplinary groups, lead teams and understand their professional and ethical responsibilities for serving the needs of the society.
