The Department of Instrument Technology was started as Instrument Manufacturing Section in 1937 and instituted as full pledged separate department in 1946 as Department of Applied Physics with Instrumentation, Optics and Electronics as Specializations. In view of the growing emphasis on Instrumentation Engineering the Department was shifted to College of Engineering and renamed as the Department of Instrument Technology in 1990 by offering the programs B.Tech.(Instrumentation Engineering), M.Tech. (Instrumentation and Control) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D). All the Programs Offered by the department are accredited by NBA as well as NAAC as whole university with A grade(3.65 score on 4.0 scale). The department is well known for its research and consultancy in the areas of Sensors, MEMS Nano Technology, Instrumentation and Automation. From 1966, the department pioneered research in the area of Thin-Film Technology Photo-Elasticity, ultrasonic and applications. More than 40 Ph.Ds have been awarded and another 50 are in progress which shows its stability towards research and advancement in Instrumentation . On average the Faculty of Department are publishing 50 research papers per year in the internationally repute journals like IEEE, Springer, Elsevier etc. At present the Department is having 8 research projects funded by UGC, DST, AICTE and DRDO.
