Industry overview:
Instrumentation engineering is one of the complicated but sophisticated branches of engineering discipline which deals with the control and measurement of the flow of charge in automated systems. The professionals who are involved in these activities are known as Instrumentation Engineers. This field of engineering equips you with knowledge of control and measurement of system for efficient productivity, reliability, safety and stability. Now a days the demand for a good Instrumentation Engineer is increased very much. For a good quality and speedy production all Industries are trying for automated machines and control equipments. Because of that the chance for instrumentation/control equipment designers, installers, operators, and analysers are increased a lot. The Instrumentation Engineer decides the type of instruments needed for ensuring better quality and efficiency of the end products, in any industrial undertaking.

To pursue a career in instrumentation engineering one must have completed +2 Science with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics with good percentages of marks in aggregate. Selections are generally made on the basis of entrance examinations conducted both at national and state level (e.g. IITJEE, AIEEE, BITSAT, KCET etc.). After qualifying the entrance exam one can take up BE/BTech in Applied Electronics & Instrumentation/ Electronics & Instrumentation/ Control & Instrumentation / Instrumentation Engineering which is of four years duration. One can also attain M.Tech Degree after completion of B.E./ B. Tech. Many diploma/ Certificate courses are also available in Instrumentation. After B. Tech many Industrial oriented courses are offering by many private institutions like PROFICIENT, PROLIFIC, IPCS, SEC, SIIT, DS Enterprises etc,.
A wide variety of M. Tech/ ME courses are available for Instrumentation graduates. Some of the courses are M. Tech/ ME in Control & Instrumentation, Instrumentation, Industrial Power & Automation, Robotics, Chemical Process Control, Process Control, Biomedical Instrumentation, Environmental Engineering, Power Systems, Embedded Systems etc,. In these M. Tech/ ME in Control & Instrumentation branch having a good chance in Process Industries like GINTAL, SAIL, HNL, Reliance, FACT, KRL, BHEL, Chemical Industries, Petroleum Industries etc, in India/ Abroad. But the most chances with high salary packages are offering by Gulf Countries. Gujrat, Mumbai and Pune are also a good place for Instrumentation Engineers.

Job Prospects & Remuneration:
Career opportunities in this are immense and challenging. There exist enough employment opportunities with user industries such as steel, chemical, thermal power stations, fertilizer, Petrochemicals, cement, refineries power industry and so on. The Instrumentation Engineer is more in demand in R&D Units of government, Defence and private sector. One can also explore employment opportunities with instrument manufacturers and the growing industrial automation industry. One may choose to move sideways into other career areas either within or outside their industry. This might include areas such as purchasing, sales, marketing, finance, HR, IT or general management.
These engineers can pursue consultancy-based work. Those who have an aptitude use their expertise they have gained in industry and engage in academic research in universities or acquire a tutoring/coaching role as a lecturer or trainer of instrumentation engineers.
The average starting monthly salary of instrumentation engineering graduates in India ranges between Rs. 10,000 – Rs.20, 000. Fresh graduates from elite technological institutions like Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and Birla Institute of Technology get more remuneration as compared to others. Also many deemed universities are also getting more salary package. In the year of 2011, the students are selected from Deemed Universities with an average monthly package of 38,000/- and from IIT’s it’s around 45,000 pm.
Senior instrumentation experts with more than five years of working experience can earn anywhere between Rs 35,000 and Rs 85,000 per month or even more.
