What is Instrumentation Engineering

Instrumentation engineers have acquired importance as their scope of work has penetrated into other spheres such as electrical, electronics, chemical, and computers. Owing to technological advancements that are taking place in a wide array of fields, including medical industry, students are taught about biomedical instrumentation. With stress being laid on increasing digitization in the country, students acquire knowledge about digital signal processing. Students are also trained in electrical systems, circuits, and network as now the country is heading towards smart metering and net metering.

Eligibility Criteria (UG & PG) of Instrumentation Engineering

UG Course: Students who are planning to take up bachelor's in instrumentation and control engineering need to have passed their 10+2 examination in science stream with physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology.

PG Course: Candidates need to clear their bachelor's in electronics and instrumentation engineering, electronics and communication engineering, electronics engineering.

Scope of Instrumentation Engineering in India and Abroad

In the automobile sector, there is demand for instrumentation engineers as they play an important role in assembling parts of vehicles. In the medical field, instrumentation engineers are employed in the development of blood glucose monitors as well as electrocardiograph equipment and computed tomography scanners. The growth in the electronics sector has resulted in an increase in the demand for instrumentation engineers as they design and automate various electronic products. Since big industries like steel and cement require control of the engineering system, instrumentation engineers are responsible for the development, designing, and control of various equipment.

difference b/w Electronics and communications engineering and electronics and instrumentation engineering.

Mayank Chowdhary 1st Jun, 2020

As the name suggests, both are almost the same and both the students will surely compete for jobs and placement opportunities. The difference being Communication Engineering deals with the Micro Controllers and Micro Processors. Satellite and Fiber communication is also included here.

In the contrary, Instrumentation Engineering has knolwedge of PLC and DCS and various other instruments for the measurement of Flow, Level, Temperature, Pressure. Various strategies for the controlling the same are also studied.

Best wishes. Thank you.


If i have completed my B-tech in biomedical engineering then i have opted Mtech in Instrumentation engineering for future placements, is it a write option ?

Aditi amrendra Student Expert 26th May, 2020

In my opinion, if you have done your bachelor's in Biomedical engineering then you should do you master's too in Biomedical engineering.Also it has good scope in future as you can get research based jobs as well as private/government.Post corona world will focus more on medical and healthcare facility and there will be more and more options in this field so i would recommend you to go for Biomedical engineering.

Good Luck

Does INSTRUMENTATION AND CONTROL ENGINEERING (ROBOTICS) have best time in future? (I mean having the best opportunities)

anurag khanna 21st May, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

Yes of course, Instrumentation and Control Engineering is in great demand now and undoubtedly it is going to increase in future. As the world is going towards automation in which robots will be take main role in our life. At present we are suffering through the revolution period in which robots are going g to take place of humans in different works. As of now so many companies are emphasizing on automated works, there is a huge demand to reduce the work labour on humans. All this can be made possible only due to practical knowledge of Robotics.

I hope this information helps you.

Good Luck!!
