Department of Instrumentation and Control Engineering
The Department of Instrumentation and Control Engineering started functioning in the year 1995 with the approval of AICTE with a sanctioned intake of 40 students. It offers undergraduate programme of B.E. Instrumentation and Control Engineering .With Anna University's curriculum, the Department places equal emphasis on both theoretical and experimental issues in instrumentation and control engineering. The department has well qualified, dedicated and experienced faculty who have been the driving force behind the rapid success of this department. The department has good infrastructure with well equipped laboratories. The department also has qualified and dedicated supporting staff for our laboratories. Bright and airy classrooms are equipped with modern teaching aids such as LCD etc. The department also has a library with text books and question banks, which will motivate the students for learning. Additional books are also being added frequently.

Objective
To develop the department as a center of excellence to take care of the local and regional needs related to instrumentation engineering activity. To meet acute needs of trained specialists in the diverse field of Instrumentation and Control Engineering.

Opportunities
The Instrumentation and Control Engineering degree program prepares the graduates to enter a dynamic and rapidly changing field with career opportunities in Electric Power, Power Electronics, Microprocessors and Controllers, Integrated Circuits, Robotics and Control, Computer Hardware and Software. The demand for electrical power and electronic systems is increasing rapidly and Instrumentation and Control Engineering are in great demand to meet the requirements of the growing industry. Instrumentation and Control Engineerings are mainly employed in industries using Electrical Power, Manufacturing Electrical Equipment, Electronic Systems, Accessories, Research and Development departments which work on energy saving devices and Software Development. Instrumentation and Control Engineering is arguably the technology which has most shaped the world we live in. All aspects of our lives are affected by the electrical power we take for granted.

Lab Facilities :

Laboratories:
[1] Electrical workshop : This laboratory is used to impart the practical knowledge to the students about the wiring, winding of transformers and machines. This workshop is the very important not only for the students of Electrical Engineering branch but also for the students of other engineering branches.
[2] Electrical Machines Lab : This laboratory imparts the knowledge about characteristics and behavior of the DC and AC Machines. This is the core lab for the Electrical Engineering branch and the ancillary for ECE and Mechanical branches.
[3] Control System Lab : The Lab introduces students to fundamental control systems theory with emphasis on design and implementation. Design and implementation for this course is done using MATLAB software with control system toolbox to undergo the experiments like open loop and closed loop system. The lab was well furnished with the equipments like AC and DC servomotor, synchros, position control system, Controller design kit. The lab provides the facility to analyze the stability of the system.
[4] Measurements and Instrumentation Lab : This laboratory imparts the knowledge to find unknown resistance, inductance and capacitance through the bridge circuits.
[5] Power Electronics Lab : It consists of different kinds of demo kits such as SCR characteristics, study kit for D.C motor control using chopper. The lab is equipped with all the power electronic converters, DSP and FPGA based DC and AC Drives, Digital Integrated kits, Power supplies etc.
[6] Power System Simulation Lab : This lab is well equipped with MATLAB comprising tool boxes like Neural Network, Fuzzy logic, Control System, Power System etc., which integrates the mathematical computing visualization, and a powerful language to provide a flexible environment for technical computing, PSPICE to design a electronic circuits.
