Instrumentation is a pioneer field of engineering in the modern era. In this fast growing age of automation and process industries, instrumentation engineer is an inevitable choice of every industry. So it is very essential and relevant in implementing a department which moulds young talents in the field of instrumentation. With that view we have started the Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering in the year of 2002. The annual intake is 60.
The thrust areas includes
- Instrument design and Development
- Control and Automation
- Sensor design and development
- Process Control Instrumentation
- Virtual Instrumentation
- Fuzzy logic and neural networks
The department consists of highly qualified and eminent faculty members with immense knowledge and vast experience in teaching and industry. For the last eight years, the department has made several achievements in the field of technical education. It is proud to announce our students had achieved First and Second Ranks in the M G University examinations from 2006 to 2018 as a continuum. A large number of students from our department are placed in the national and multinational companies.
The department has well equipped laboratories such as “Transducers and Measurements Lab”, “Instrumentation Lab”, “Virtual Instrumentation Lab” and fully automated “Process Control Lab” which are essentially necessary for the students to excel in practical fields of instrumentation. It addition we have a dedicated Research Lab and Calibration Lab
An association named IDEA is working under the department of EIE. Various activities such as seminars, quiz competitions, group discussions, technical paper presentations and invited experts` talks are being carried out in this association.

Program Specific Outcomes (PSO)
PSOs represent what the students should be able to do at the time of graduation from Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering,
PSO1(K4): Apply the concepts of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering to design a variety of components and systems for applications including and not limited to electronics, control system, process and industrial instrumentation, signal processing and other related areas of engineering.
PSO2(K3): Select and apply cutting-edge engineering hardware and software tools to solve complex Electrical, Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering problems.
The nature of work of an Instrumentation engineer ranges from designing, developing, installing, managing equipments that are used to monitor and control machinery. Instrumentation Engineers typically work for industries with automated process with the goal of improving the productivity, reliability, safety, optimization and stability.
Electronics and Instrumentation engineers are commonly responsible for integrating the sensors with the recorders, transmitters, displays or control systems. They may design or specify installation, wiring and signal conditioning. They may be responsible for calibration, testing and maintenance of the system.
An Electronics and Instrumentation Engineer graduate would find employment in industries which improve efficiency, stability and safety of automated processes. The industrial sectors include Public/Private firms, R&D organizations, Manufacturing Process Industries, Power Plants Chemical and Petrochemical Industries.
