About IC Department

Instrumentation & Control Engineering Department was established in 2001 with intake of 60 affiliated with Gujarat Technological University, Gujarat. The Department has well equipped laboratories with latest instruments such as Siemens and ABB PLC, ABB DCS, NI Elvis DC motor kit, and software’s such as LABVIEW, MATLAB, PSIM Simulator, Multisim etc... The department has well equipped process control laboratory with level control, pressure control, cascade control, Ratio control as well as heat exchanger and various pneumatic kits.

Department has highly skilled faculty members who possess doctoral degree and many are pursuing PhD in different courses of core in Instrumentation & Control. Few faculties have filed patents on their research work, have published research papers in peer reviewed journals having good impact factor and also published books with international renowned publishers;have also received travel grants for presenting paper in international conferences in various countries, like china, Canada, Turkey, Malaysia etc. funded by DST, GUJCOST, GTU etc.

I& C Dept. has undersigned MOUs with number of companies in and aoround Baroda for Students Project, Training, Expert Lecture, Seminar and Campus Placement. Department have successfully completed various projects funded by GUJCOST, IIPC, and IETE. Department has its own library with good reference books,magazines,journals and wide collection of various teaching methods including model, technical chart for better understanding of students. Different types of Seminar, Expert lectures and Workshops are organized under ISA Students’ Chapter in I&C Department.

For the betterment of students, faculties conduct regular quiz in lectures and laboratories. The online objective type Fundamental Technical Knowledge  Test (FTKT) is conducted at the end of the semester for each subject. All the students have to give two seminars in each semester using chalk and talk method. The department conducts mock placement which includes aptitude test, GD, PI for improving the placement activities. There is research paper writing and patent drafting lecture for LY, TY students by senior faculties of the department. LY students IDP/UDPs are continuously evaluated by industrial experts through conducting mid semester project review.

Department is keen in regularly organising industrial visits for each semester in thermal power plants, nuclear power plants, chemical and gas industries , process industries, control valve manufacturing industries. There is a constant endeavor by the department to reduce the gap between industry and institute by regularly organising  various workshops like calibration and maintenance workshop , Intool workshop etc. Various hands-on activities are conducted during skill development slots to improve knowledge and practical aspects of the students.
