What is Instrumentation Engineering
Instrumentation Engineering is all about the development and application of instruments. In the field of Engineering, many instruments are Mechanical / Electrical devices to measure something. Instrumentation is used wherever Mechanical and Electrical systems need to be measured and monitored.
Instrumentation Engineers design and set up instrument panels and all of the equipment behind it that is required to make them work. Building wiring looms, sensor calibration, signal conditioning and testing methods are common daily tasks of an Instrumentation Engineer. In this field, Engineers often work within and lead teams of technicians who install and repair the instrumentation.
Graduates are armed with hands on skills as well as programming knowledge, making this a valuable discipline. Fields of employment for Instrumentation Engineers include the automotive industry, aviation, manufacturing plants and science labs.
