    The primary focus of

    instrumentation

    engineering is the

    development and

    implementation of

    electrical and electronic

    instruments for the

    purpose of measuring,

    monitoring, and

    recording physical

    phenomena. Among

    many other types of

    instruments,

    instrumentation

    engineers develop

    seismic sensors, blood

    glucose sensors, fire

    detectors, and

    amperemeters.

    Instruments developed

    by instrumentation

    engineers include

    analog, digital, and

    mixed signal electronic

    devices. Major users of

    these instruments

    include industries that

    rely on automated

    processes, such as

    chemical and

    manufacturing plants.

    They depend on these

    devices for safety, and

    for improving

    productivity and

    reliability. A very large

    field of work is also

    offered in biomedical

    engineering, and in

    metrology (the

    discipline that provides

    devices for technical

    measurements).

    The scope of

    instrumentation

    engineering is vast, and

    appears to be growing,

    in part due to the

    increased use of

    automatic control in

    manufacturing and

    process plants. Growth

    is also tied to the

    development of more

    accurate and more

    robust sesnors, which

    allow us to detect

    phenomena of interest

    (such as the presence of

    minute levels of toxins

    in food) with much

    higher precision than

    what we could do a

    generation ago.

    The Applied Electronics

    and Instrumentation

    curriculum in most

    universities includes

    courses on the design of

    analog and digital

    electronic devices used

    for measurement and

    control of parameters

    such as flow, pressure,

    temperature, and level,

    and the calibration of

    such instruments.

    Students learn to

    program

    microcontrollers, and to

    design and implement

    communication

    networks composed of

    sensors, actuators, and

    programmable logic

    controllers (PLC). Since

    instrumentation

    engineering is closely

    related to control

    engineering, some

    universities include

    courses on signals,

    systems, and control

    theory.

    The degree title

    mentioned in the

    question, Applied

    Electronics and

    Instrumentation, is most

    popular in India.

    Therefore, we decided

    to look at what Indian

    universities that offer

    Applied Electronics and

    Instrumentation

    degrees say about the

    career paths that

    graduates are likely to

    have.

    Here is what the

    Department of Applied

    Electronics and

    Instrumentation

    Engineering at the

    Silicon Institute of

    Technology in

    Bhubaneswar says

    about career prospects

    of its graduates:

    The demand for Applied

    Electronics is growing

    rapidly and job

    opportunities for

    graduates are multi-

    faceted. The graduates

    can work as

    Manufacturing

    Engineers in [multi-

    national corporations]

    like Sony, LG, Samsung,

    and Philips, as quality

    controllers, research,

    design & development

    consultants,

    entrepreneurs, and

    teachers.

    The Applied Electronics

    and Instrumentation

    Department at Manav

    Rachna College of

    Engineering also cites

    rapid growth and the

    diverse application of

    the field:

    The field of Applied

    Electronics and

    Instrumentation

    Engineering is growing

    at a very fast pace. Over

    the past three decades

    the field of

    instrumentation has

    seen an extremely

    widespread application

    in almost all discipline of

    engineering e.g., mining

    & metallurgy, robotics,

    textile, rolling mills,

    cranes & hoists, arc

    furnaces, chemical

    engineering, process

    control, and static relays.

    Good for anybody who has an interest and aptitude for it. Gender has *nothing* to do with it.
