The Department of Instrumentation and Automation Technology provides diversified research opportunities to both undergraduates and postgraduates to improve their knowledge and research skills. All the academic staff members in the department engage in high quality research in the areas of nuclear instrumentation, advanced materials & instrumentation (gas sensors and biosensors, photovoltaics, batteries, and flexible electronic devices), optical sensing & instrumentation, embedded systems designing, biomedical instrumentation, human computer interaction, robotics and autonomous systems, sensor networks, industrial automation, and machine vision. All undergraduates of the department are required to carry out mini projects and final year research projects related to the above fields. The training and skills gained through this process would help to produce competent graduates capable of handling challenges in the area of engineering technology.
