Few photographs of FDP on Recent Advances in Photonics

The North Eastern region of India is abundant in natural resources like petroleum, natural gas, coal, limestone and other minor minerals such as magnetic quartzite, clay etc. Furthermore, Assam is also the largest producer of tea in India. In that capacity, so as to take care of the demand of Instrumentation Engineers in these industries, Instrumentation Engineering Department was established in the year 1992 with an intake capacity of 20 students in Jorhat Engineering College, with JEC turning into the main institute in N.E area of the nation to offer four years B.E programme in Instrumentation Engineering.

The courses are approved by AICTE, New Delhi. In the year 2009, AICTE has approved to increase the intake capacity of Instrumentation Engineering to 30. The courses are affiliated under Dibrugarh University, Assam and Assam Science and Technology University (ASTU), Assam. The department admits the students into the programme through a Common Entrance Examination and Lateral Entry through Lateral Entrance Examination conducted by the Government of Assam.

The department has strength of one Professor, two Associate Professors and four Assistant Professors. The faculties are specialized in Instrumentation, Power System, Control System, MEMS Devices, Biomedical Signal Processing and Embedded Systems.

The department is well equipped with modern laboratory facilities and computer centre. The course structure and syllabi of the subjects are modified at a regular interval of time to incorporate the recent developments in science & technology. Moreover, the department also gives emphasis to incorporate all the topics which are included in the syllabi of different all India level competitive examinations such as GATE, IES, IAS etc.


To be a pre-eminent Department of studies in Instrumentation Engineering by imparting quality education to meet the needs of industry and society.


  1. To produce instrumentation engineers having strong theoretical foundation.
  2. To keep abreast with latest developments in the domain and continuously upgrade the skills of students for better employability.
  3. To inspire students for higher education and research.
  4. To provide state of the art facilities so as to make the studentsto frontier areas of Instrumentation Engineering for the benefit of society and the region.


The students are expected to:

PEO1: Apply new and emerging technologies to analyse, design, implement and provide solutions to problems appropriate to the discipline.

PEO2: Be industry ready with adequate hands on experience on instrumentation techniques.

PEO3: Possess keenness to proceed for higher education in interrelated areas of instrumentation.

PEO4: Be proficient in computational systems and software related to domain needs.


The graduates will be able to:

PSO1: Acquire knowledge of sensor technology for applications in wide area of instrumentation.

PSO2: Practise principle of automation in industries.
