Minor in Sensor Actuator & Industrial Instrumentation

Instrumentation is the basic process of control in the industry. In industrial control, a wide number of variables temperature, flow, level, pressure, and distance can be sensed simultaneously. The technological boom in recent years has seen a transformation in the field of sensor technology. Digital and internet of things era, with upcoming industry 4.0 sensors and actuators play a vital role in any system. Moreover, automation and other fields are also composed of numerous sensors or actuators.

Through this minor program, students will be exposed to sensors and its importance in the real world. The intricate use of signal conditioning and processing will be discussed. State of the art MEMS sensors implementation and interfacing with controllers will be studied. The minor degree course will also be focused on major control and implementation technologies that are used in various manufacturing and processing industries.
