Few lines about Electronics & Instrumentation

Electronics deals with electronic devices, circuits, communication equipment like transformers, receivers, integrated circuits. It also deals with basic electronics, analog and digital transmission & reception of data, voice and video (Example AM, FM, DTH), microprocessors, satellite communication, microwave engineering, antennae and wave progression.

Instrumentation engineering is the branch of engineering that specialises on the principles and operation of measuring instruments that are used in fields of design, configuration of automated systems in electrical, pneumatic domains, etc. The nature of work of an instrumentation engineer ranges from designing, developing, installing, managing equipment that are used to monitor, control machinery, instruments at home and elsewhere is only because of the science of instrumentation.

Brief description about B.Tech/BE Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering 

The B.Tech/BE Electronics & Instrumentation is an undergraduate degree that is divided into 8-semesters. The course majorly deals with the measurement of the flow of charge in automated systems and their controls. The course is the combination of electronics, computer and mechanical engineering. The course is designed to understand the design and controls of automated systems. It also covers subjects like material science, signal processing, statistics, optics, etc. Instrumentation engineering is an important part of industries that are adopting automated systems.

The course covers the study of various engineering cycles and procedures to help the students understand the different aspects of industrial processes. The skills developed throughout the course enables the candidates to take up jobs in the core technical sector as well as the management sector.

Eligibility for B.Tech/BE

The students who have passed PUC or 10+2 with a science background can join the B.Tech course. The students interested in joining B.Tech courses are required to qualify competitive exams like CET/COMED-K/JEE with high marks in order to get merit seats in various colleges.

Admission Procedures

The students with relevant qualifications can join B.Tech/BE courses by two modes. The first one is Merit based admission and the second one is Direct admission.

Let’s discuss in detail

Merit Admission

The students who are interested to join B.Tech/BE degree should mandatorily appear for CET/COMED-K/JEE or institutional-based entrance exams and undergo counselling to choose their desired colleges for merit seats. The engineering college allotts the merit seats to the students according to their rankings and marks obtained by them in their entrance exams and  marks scored in PUC or 10+2. 

There are two types of counselling for the B.Tech/BE students

1. Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) Counselling

The students who are interested to join the government engineering colleges and other engineering colleges affiliated to the government should undergo the counselling procedures of Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA). 

The students who intend to join for the merit seats under government quota are required to complete the counselling procedures and join for the B.Tech/BE programmes in their chosen colleges. The Engineering colleges under the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) are affiliated to the Visveswaraya Technological University (VTU).

2. COMED-K Counselling

The students who are interested to join the private autonomous engineering colleges and deemed universities that are affiliated to All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) are required to apply for the COMED-K counselling procedures. The students should qualify the COMED-K counselling procedures to get admission to their desired private autonomous engineering colleges or deemed universities for Engineering programmes.

Direct Admission

The students have another option of getting admission to B.Tech/BE course by direct admission process. Under this mode of admission, the students are given direct admission to their desired colleges under management quota. The direct admission students enjoy many special privileges like that they are not required to apply for any entrance exam for getting admissions. They have an option to choose their desired colleges and universities and book their seats in advance even before the starting of the academic year. The students who are interested in direct admissions are required to contact Galaxy Educational Services for more details.
