Department of Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering

 

Introduction Faculty Laboratory Library Achievements Events Placement Research

 

        The Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering is functioning, since the inception of the institution to impart quality education to undergraduate & postgraduate engineering students in the field of EIE. The curriculum is followed as per the Anna University regulations & it is periodically upgraded. The department is having highly qualified and experienced staffs who are actively involved in teaching & research in various electronics / instrumentation engineering. The faculty members have contributed appreciably to all the co-curricular and extracurricular activities of the college administration like NBA and ISO etc.

The department has obtained Permanent Affiliation Status from the Anna University. The UG program is accredited by NBA, New Delhi. There are different laboratories such as Electronic Circuits and Devices lab, Industrial Instrumentation Lab, Virtual Instrumentation lab, Process Control lab and Transducer lab. All the laboratories are fully equipped for conducting various practical courses as prescribed by Anna University. The department is provided with good supporting staff.

The department has been getting very good results in both theory and practical university exams. About 2 faculty members are pursuing Ph.D in VLSI design area. The staff members involve themselves in the welfare of the students. Class coordinators are assigned for each class to monitor the performance of the students with respect to their attendance, test, behavior etc. The progress of each student is sent to the parents regularly. Counseling is done to the required students. If necessary, the parents are called for a discussion.

The faculty development programs, workshops and seminars are conducted in the college periodically. Staff members are also encouraged and fully supported to participate in seminars, workshops conducted by various reputed organizations and also to present papers in national and international conferences.

About 90% of the passing out students are placed in companies like TCS, Infosys, Accenture, HCL, L&T, IGATE, Mahindra Sathyam etc. Many students have also gone for the higher studies in our country and also in abroad.

The objective of the Institution and of the Department is to impart Quality Technical Education and promote the growth of effective, efficient and true professionals.

While the First year Core Curriculum begins with a common knowledge Base and customizes Students by grounding in basic Engineering Foundation and in Critical Hands on Skills in Engineering Practices, the Course has access to enhance the Learning, Student Perspective and Experience to develop Specialization in areas of 'Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering'. Class room learning is complemented by Practice in Hi-Tech Labs, Projects and Hands on Experiences, so as to foster Knowledge in 'Engineering and Technology'.

The Department strives to develop long term relationship with Industries and market the students' talents effectively. The Department has a name for itself among the top colleges at University level through Symposia, Workshops and Conferences and also through its outstanding and consistent performance in the Examinations and Placement.

Our Department has received the "Best Department Award" for producing maximum pass percentage for the academic year 2007-08. Placement record is also highest in the college.


Programmes run by the department are,
      • B.E.- Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering (EI)
      • M.E.- Control and Instrumentation Engineering (C&I)

Our Department is recognized as Research centre by Anna University, Chennai.
Our Department has received "The Teaching Awards in Engineering" presented by Education Matters and Staffordshire University UK.
