Govt. Polytechnic College, Jammu

Department of Instrumentation and Control

The department was established in the year 2004 with an intake of 30 students. The department has been imparting quality Engineering Education and is grooming students in all facets of Creative Learning, Technical Competency, Character building and Overall Personality Development. Well Qualified and experienced faculty members is the forte of this Department.

Aim - The aim of the department is to provide quality education to the youngsters so that they can contribute in the development of the nation. We not only aim on theoretical knowledge but also provide the students, exposure to the developing society so that they can build their future in a better way.

Mission - Imparting knowledge base and skill sets in the field of instrumentation & automation technologies by providing learning ambience for academics & research leading to global competence.


  • To produce competent engineers capable of developing and using technological concepts & Solutions.
  • To excel in providing quality engineering education.
  • To enhance the experience through industry- department interaction programs, leading to better awareness, interaction and employability.
  • To encourage and support creative and innovative projects & activities, to become industry-ready or pursue higher studies of their choice.
  • To contribute towards the betterment of society through workshops by imparting practical skills to unemployed youth for better employability.

The competition due to globalization has resulted in better process control, optimum utilization of resources & higher level of automation in all industry sectors. The demand for automation is increasing day by day. To face these challenges, competent Instrumentation engineers are required.

Instrumentation engineering is the engineering specialization focused on the principle and operation of measuring and control instruments which are used in design and configuration of automated processes. A highly interdisciplinary branch- Instrumentation engineering covers major aspects of chemical, mechanical and electrical and electronics fundamentals. Instrumentation Engineering provides students with sound theoretical and practical knowledge and training in the operation and maintenance of automated process control and measurement instruments used in the production of various commodities. The Instrumentation and Control Diploma Engineers get employment opportunities in both hardware & software industries. The options being Engineering design, Simulation, Development, Fabrication, Testing, Quality Control, & Marketing In Industries like Industrial Automation, Home Automation, Nuclear Power Stations, Aircraft Instrumentation & Controls, Refineries, Petrochemical, Chemical & Food Industries, Cement, Textile, Paper industries, Pharmaceutical, Engineering , Electrical & electronic, Biomedical , Thermal power station, & Automobile Industries, Fertilizer industries, Wood processing, Mining, etc. with the goal of improving system productivity, reliability, safety, optimization and stability.

Tools required for the automation e.g. DCS, PLC, SCADA, are covered under the curriculum of Instrumentation Engineering. This stream of engg. includes the detail study of electronic, pneumatic, and hydraulic instrumentation systems as well. Computerized controls are used at a very large scale in process industries, refineries, petrochemical industries and many more. Control and computing are essential features of any modern instrumentation and control system. Therefore Digital Signal Processing, embedded systems and Application Software Practices- MATLAB, Lab View are important areas for design and manufacturing of modern instruments and control systems. Biomedical Instrumentation is also an important subject in instrumentation. Growing requirement of control and computing has created a large space for “Research in Instrumentation”.
