Applied Electronics & Instrumentation engineering is one of the most preferred branches today. Instrumentation has become an all-encompassing field of engineering especially in an era of robotics and automation. Instrumentation engineers are essentially responsible for designing, developing, installing, managing and maintaining systems which monitor parameters so as to ensure automated control of processes. Almost all processing and manufacturing industries such as aviation, automobile, petrochemical, power and defence have separate instrumentation department, where instrumentation engineers are employed. They are needed in various roles like Control system design, Calibration, Automation, Quality control, Maintenance and so on. Opting Instrumentation engineering opens up a wide range of opportunities in the present digital world.
The Department of Applied Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering (AEI) established in the year 2006, has now grown at full fledge pace with well experienced faculty and sophisticated laboratories.Saintgits teaching- learning process emphasises on understanding concepts so as to enable the student for specific outcome orientation..The department also follows all the norms prescribed by the University, AICTE and NBA.
Apart from basic knowledge of Electrical, Electronics and Mechanical subjects, the students learn Robotics, Mechatronics, Biomedical, Artificial Intelligence, Computerised Process Control ,Control Systems, Digital Signal Processing etc. These courses also help them to design, develop and fabricate various electronic related accessories. The department provides students with sound theoretical & practical training in the operation and design of electronic instruments, digital logic systems, and computer based automatic process control.
Another highlight of this programme in the department is that students become industry ready by undergoing training in the following unique facilities:
->National Instruments LabVIEW Academy for hands on training in Control and Automation,
->The only ANSYS Multi-physics Campus in Kerala with globally accepted ANSYS certification in Design.
->Fab Lab and IoT Lab supported by Kerala Startup mission for fabricating their products.
->SAINTGITS Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship helps to develop patentable products and inculcate entrepreneurial skills.
