Instrumentation engineering is a specialized branch of Electrical and Electronics engineering and it deals with measurement, control and automation of processes. Apart from covering core subjects such as Industrial Instrumentation and process control, Bio-medical instrumentation and robotics, this branch also covers software and hardware subjects which are learnt by Electronics and Communication students and also Electrical Engineering students. This makes an Instrumentation engineer fit for both the hardware and the software industry. Hence "Instrumentation Technology" has now been renamed as "Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering".

Electronics and Instrumentation Department is one of the branches of Engineering in Instrumentation area emphasizing the importance of Electronics in the Instrumentation field. Moreover Instrumentation being one of the most important sought branches in Industrial point of view, a combination of Electronics and Instrumentation would fetch high dividends for the students who take up Electronics and Instrumentation as their career course.

Electronics and Instrumentation Engineers have a bright future ahead of them as they are needed by almost all Industries in various cadres like Design, Development, Automation, Control, Fabrication, Inspection, Quality control, Maintenance and Service and so on.

An Instrumentation engineer has opportunities in many central government organizations like DRDO, ISRO, IOC, BARC, NTPC, Railways, BSNL, HAL, AAI, etc. Also many core companies like Honeywell, Texas Instruments, National Instruments, ABB, Larsen & Toubro, Robert Bosch, Invensys, GE, Suzlon, Apna Technologies, Whirlybird, ESSAR, Yokogawa, Orange, LG, SAMSUNG, SONY, SANSUI, Whirlpool, Intel, Vedanta, Oil & Coal, many software companies like TCS, Infosys, Wipro, CTS, HCL etc recruit these engineers.

P.D.A. College of Engineering, Kalaburagi is offering this branch since 1982. The department has highly qualified faculty and staff with an average experience of above 20 years. Apart from having well equipped regular laboratory facilities the department stands first in North Karnataka region in establishing the Virtual Instrumentation Laboratory which consists of VI hardware and LabVIEW software from National Instruments Bangalore. The department is also conducting Certified LabVIEW trainings which helps the placement of the students. The department also has MoUs to help in this regard. The passed out graduates are well placed in India and abroad.
