Department of EIE Engineering - About the Department

The autonomous system is a buzzword today, where machines, equipment, devices and even automobiles are created to work independently. Thanks to Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering (EIE) discipline which forms the backbone to make it happen. Being a multidisciplinary stream, Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering offers a solution to all the Engineering branches like Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical, Textile Technology, and Biomedical and so forth.

The Instrumentation Engineer is responsible for designing, developing, integrating various sensors, control systems and visualization objects so that the overall productivity of the industries are improved many folds. The recent developments in technologies like IoT (Internet of Things) and IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things)have increased the responsibility and job opportunity of Instrumentation graduates, spanning from Research and Development Centres to Pharmaceutical Companies, Food and Beverage Industries, Oil and Gas Refineries, Power Plants, Aerospace Industries, Cement Industries and almost every sphere of the globe.

The Department of Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering, Government College of Technology, Coimbatore was started in the year 1984, offers an undergraduate Programme B. E.
