After succeeding the entrance test, students very often face the dilemma in opting for a desired engineering stream. While following the trends and craze, they sometimes discount or overlook certain streams which can carry bright potential. One such neglected avenue is Instrumentation Engineering. Primarily an Instrumentation Engineer can be branched into three broad categories. The very first is of maintenance, where the engineer is responsible for the maintenance, repair and support of all control systems and field instruments. The second job profile is of a designer where the designing element and correct installation procedure of instruments and control systems in a project is taken care of. The third category is where you work on control logic, system design and development. It involves more of coding and is sort of a software development job.
The required tasks in Instrumentation Engineering are very domain specific; An Instrumentation Engineer typically works for automated industries with the objective of improving the productivity, optimisation, safety and reliability. With the latest advent of AI in the picture, robotics is an interesting and intriguing field that requires multidisciplinary skills including Instrumentation and Control as an important component. The interdisciplinary nature of the stream opens opportunities for Instrumentation Engineers in various sectors like Research & Development units, heavy industries as thermal power stations, steel plants, refineries, cement and fertilizer plants. Last few decades have expanded it's sphere into varied other exciting fields like Biomedical, Nuclear, Mining and Metallurgy and Aerospace applications too. The Instrumentation Engineering stream stands out in a way as it gives students a favourable merge of hardware and software domain and a good base in electrical, electronics and control fields too.
The demand for Instrumentation is geographically high in the Gulf countries because of high concentration of the oil and natural gas firms. Some of the key recruiters that hire Instrumentation Engineers across India are Larsen & Toubro, GE, Suzlon, ESSAR, Robert Bosch, Reliance industries Ltd, Tata Consultancy Engineers, Tata Power, Siemens Ltd, Chemtrols and Emerson, Invensys Technologies etc. Given any day qualification, work experience, and an honoured degree from one of the premier institutes like IITs seals the deal undoubtedly, which in itself is a determining factor for highly attractive compensation packages.
