In the fast changing era of modern world, Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering ( E&IE) had played a key role. The world economy depends on obtaining the data using sensors, processing it and using it for controlling the manufacturing process and their modernisation using various  techniques. This will improve the quality of human life.


In this nation building activity Department of E & IE, BMSCE understand the importance of preparing engineering students to the current needs in this competitive world through Outcome Based Education (OBE). This quality is reflected through the department getting Accredited by NBA according to Washington Accord in Tier-I . The faculty and staff are well qualified and Practice innovative teaching method in the T-L-P process.


The Department of Instrumentation Technology ( changed the nomenclature by VTU as Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering with effect from 2014 batch onwards) was  established in the year 1991,  offers four year Under Graduate program with intake of 60.   The strength of the department is the Human Resource: Dedicated faculty, necessary technical staff and enthusiastic students. The curriculum takes the student through effective usage of Modern Engineering Tools like: Matlab, LabVIEW, Multisim, Xilinx,  Code-Composer-Studio,  simulation tools, PCB design labs, process control loops and PLCs applications. The department has strong interactions with relevant industries and Professional bodies. Their contribution is reflected in through guidance in curriculum design, organization of industrial visits, conduction of expert lectures, organization of workshops, and joint research. One of the important functions of the Department is use of its convening capacity to draw together key stakeholders( Alumni, employers, Faculty, Industries, Professional bodies and students )  in a neutral venue, one that allows them to discuss issues and foster collaborative activities around issues in which they have a strong common interest. The department aims to achieve this by emphasizing on teaching and research. The Projects implemented  by our students had resulted many awards at National level, many patents and publications in Peer-reviewed journals and conferences.


The department prepares the graduating engineers so that they are able to pursue a successful professional career. The quality of the graduating students is reflected in good on-campus/off-campus recruitments in core and allied industries. A significant number of our graduates  pursue higher education in Engineering/ Management in prestigious Universities in India and abroad .


Department of Instrumentation Technology  is accredited by NBA on the basis of Washington Accord in Tier-I format.
