About Instrumentation Department
Electrical Engineering Department came as the second functioning department (together with Mechanical Engineering Department) of Assam Engineering College in September, 1957. Initially, the intake capacity was 30 students, which was raised to 60 students in 1962, and to 90 students in 2009. In 1998, Instrumentation Engineering branch, with an intake capacity of 20 students, was introduced, and was attached with the Electrical Engineering Department. In 2003, M. Tech. was introduced in the department with an intake capacity of 20 students. Many students are also doing Ph.D. in the department. At present, there are 17 regular and 1 guest faculty members in the department.

Training and Placement: -
The placement scenario of the department has been quite encouraging in the last 2-3 years. Many reputed companies, such as TCS, Satyam, Infosys, BPCL, NRL, ICICI, CTS, ABB, Punj LLOYD, ASEB, NEEPCO, Power Grid, RIL, Vedanta etc. have recruited students of both electrical and instrumentation engineering in the recent past.
The Instrumentation Engineering branch covers the following topics :
On-going AICTE Projects
Instrumentation system components.
Electric measurements and measuring instruments.
Signal and signal processing.
Microprocessor and microprocessor based instruments.
Introduction to unit operation.
Computer oriented numerical methods.
Telemetry and telecontrol.
RPS project on “ Maintenance Management Strategy for Improving System Reliability with reference to Power Utilities in the Northeast India”.
MODROBS project on “Embedded System Lab’
MODROBS project on “Power System Simulation laboratory”
Initiatives taken to enhance student-teacher interaction
- Faculty advisors for each semester have been appointed- a student can approach the faculty advisor for any academic or non-academic problem.
- Since 2007, student’s feedback has been introduced. It is expected to enhance the teachers’ understanding of students’ problems and improve his/her teaching.
