        Instrumentation engineering is a specialised branch of electrical and electronic engineering and it deals with measurement, control and automation of processes. It is specialized branch of electrical and electronic engineering, which focuses on the principle, and operation of measuring instruments, process control.
        EIE Engineers work for industries with automated processes, such as chemical or manufacturing plants, with the goal of improving system productivity, reliability, safety, optimization and stability. Instrumentation Engineers help in the designing, construction and maintenance of instruments and entire instrumentation systems of an industrial undertaking. They decide the type of instruments needed for ensuring better quality and efficiency of the end product.
        Tasks and responsibilities, which are common to instrumentation engineers, may include, Designing and developing new control systems, Maintaining and modifying existing systems, Managing operations, Working collaboratively with design engineers, operation engineers, purchasers and other internal staff, Contacting clients, suppliers, contractors and relevant authorities, Project management within cost and time constrained environments Troubleshooting and problem-solving Understanding and ensuring compliance with the health and safety regulations and quality standards, Providing advice and consultancy support Purchasing equipment Writing computer software; Developing new business proposals Domain expert in IT industries. Working with meters, gauges and even robots — Instrumentation engineers have a wide field to deal with.
    Job Prospects
        Instrumentation engineers can get jobs in R&D units of public and private sector companies. They are also required by the Heavy industries such as Thermal Power Stations, Steel Plants, Refineries, and Cement and Fertilizer Plants BOTH IN Govt. and private sectors like N.F.L., BHEL, Honeywell, SamsungI, IOCL, and SAIL. Many IT sector companies like TCS, Infosys, Accenture are hiring students for campus placement.
         Almost all process and manufacturing industry such as steel, oil, petrochemical, power and defence production will have a separate instrumentation department, which is manned and managed by instrumentation engineers. “Automation is the buzz word in process industry, and automation is the core job of instrumentation engineers. Hence, the demand for instrumentation will always be there,” says the professor. M.Tech.-level programmes in Instrumentation Engineering, Astronomical Instrumentation, Instrumentation and Control Systems, Industrial Automation, Electronics Design and Technology, Process Control and Instrumentation, Embedded Systems, Robotics, Electronics and so on are suitable higher studies options. Selection will be on the basis of the score in the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE).
