COURSES WE OFFER
B.Tech Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering
The curriculum of under graduate programme in Electronics and Instrumentation engineering includes courses on the design of analog and digital instruments used for measurement and control of physical parameters such as flow, pressure, temperature, and level, and the calibration of such instruments. Students learn to design and configure embedded systems, and to design and implement automated systems composed of sensors, actuators, and programmable logic controllers (PLC).
Along with the specialized subjects of instrumentation, students learn the subjects which equip them to acquire the core competencies expected from an engineer graduated in Electrical & Electronics engineering or Electronics & Communication engineering.
Core Subjects: –
- Digital System Design, VLSI Circuit Design
- Embedded System Design
- Micro Electronics, MEMS/NEMS
- Logic and Distributed Control
- Aerospace and Navigation Instrumentation

The company excels in turnkey project execution in Process Automation and Enterprise Integration with core competencies in Design and Engineering of Process Control Systems, Implementation of Extended Enterprise Applications etc. Department has Memorandum of Understanding with Yokogawa India Ltd. on Technical Knowledge Exchange. The training programs mentored by Yokogawa offers add on hands on expertise to students and faculty on mandatory skill sets in industrial automation. Yokogawa is one of the key recruiters of our students.
ISOI (Instrument Society of India)
The Society of Instrumentation professionals was established in the year 1970, with headquarters at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. It strives to act as a link between academic institutions and the instrumentation industry. In SJCET, ISOI chapter was started in the year 2004. All the students and the faculty in department of Instrumentation Engineering are the members. The department organizes various programs like, seminars, conferences, paper presentation, Invited talks etc. in collaboration with ISOI for the development of students.
ISA (Instrumentation Students Association)
The Instrument Students Association (ISA) was established at SJCET in the academic year 2003. The objective of ISA is to provide a forum, which will effectively represent the interest and concerns of students of Applied Electronics and Instrumentation department, for pooling their knowledge and experience, supporting the initiatives and events that enrich the career.
