The department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering conducts 4 years degree course in Engineering under affiliation to Berhampur University (up to 2006) and Biju Patnaik University of Technology (B.Tech Programme w.e.f. 2003). The course is designed by the University, and aimed at making the students well versed with the recent trends as well as the basics of Electronics, Instrumentation and control Engineering.
The department has started M.Tech course with specialization in Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering from 2008-09 academic year, under BPUT, Orissa.
The department comprises of analog electronics circuits, digital logic circuits, microprocessor and micro controller, power electronics, sensor and signal, digital signal processing, communication, computerized process control, process control and instrumentation, control system, Instrumentation design, Modeling and Simulation laboratories.
By looking into the need of the instrumentation Engineers in the core sector, the department has state of the art laboratories equipped with highly sophisticated equipments like Allan Bradley and GE-Fanuc PLC. The department is well versed with LABVIEW software to provide the students a user friendly environment in a designing industrial automation system.
The department is having a well equipped VLSI design laboratory, under MODROB project, sponsored by AICTE, New Delhi.
All these labs are well equipped with sophisticated instruments and trainer kits, most of which are custom-designed to facilitate better demonstration and easier understanding of the students. Apart from these, the department boasts of analog control system equipments, digital control system and PC based control system setups in the control system laboratory, which is further enriched by the presence of a PC interface robotic trainer.
Process control and instrumentation laboratory caters to the needs of students of other departments such as chemical engg. and mechanical engg. It is equipped with various measuring, recording process instruments such as thermocouples, radiation pyrometer,vapour pressure thermometer, bimetallic thermometers, pH meter, conductivity meter, pressure gauges etc. Again it contains process control setups such as flow process control system etc.
Nevertheless the DSP lab (digital signal processing) is lightened with DSP trainer kits using ICs of Texas instruments (TI320c.50) for speech processing. Last but not the least, TDM, PAM, PCM trainer kits in the communication lab explains all about the propagation characteristics of digital electronic signal which are considered as most advanced equipments of the day.
The faculty members take care of maintenance of the departments and also the active participation of the students in laboratory activities helps in upgrading their knowledge about the use of the kits. The department ensures that the student, on being a professional, should stand out with the pride of handling the most advanced and sophisticated equipment smoothly.
The department encourages the students to devise electronic gadgets on their own through a HOBBY CLUB. Practical industrial equipments like flow process station, PLC and MODBUS TRAINER, PC interfaced ROBOTIC TRAINER are a few of the attractions of the department. Practical work condition with maximum expose to the latest trends by the experienced and dedicated faculties is the hallmark.
The department is continuously engaged in inviting guest professors from outside universities and industries to bridge the gap between the latest developments in technical side with the industrial requirements.
The department has signed MoU (memorandum of Understanding) with NITTTR, Kolkata (an institute of repute under central Govt.) and Prudent SoftTech Pvt. Ltd., Hyderabad for the benefit of the faculty and students in carrying out their research related activities.
