Electonics and Circuit Design Lab

The Department is having an Electronic and circuit design lab for Analog and Digital Electronics hands on Experiments. Students use Electronic workbench, bread board, and Circuit trainer board to perform the Experiments.

Automation and Motion Control Lab

Department is having Automation and motion control lab where students can perform practical on Allen-Bradley PLC Trainer panel, SCADA trainer kit, Network Protocol Based Control System Trainer, Twin Rotor MIMO Control System, and Magnetic Levitation Control System. The objective of this lab is to familiarize in automation and different trainer kits.

Embedded System Lab

Department is having Embedded system lab where students have different trainer kits like microprocessor, microcontroller, PIC microcontroller, embedded trainer and AVR trainer kit. Embedded Laboratory is a laboratory in which we provide tutorials and projects from the field of Electronics.

Measurement and Transducer Lab

Measurement and transducer lab where students develop their basic project models using different sensors like Thermocouple/RTD/ Capacitive Level Sensors, CROs, Function generators, power supply and instrumentation work bench. This gives them hands on experience in designing and executing of circuits for real systems.

Computer Center

Department is having well equipped computer lab which provides the tools and technologies to students. High tech softwares like MATLAB, LabVIEW, Keil, Multisim-ultiboard, Pspice-sofware, PicoSoft, RS Logic 5000, SciLab.

Process Instrumentation and Calibration Lab

The Department has a Process Control and Calibration Laboratory. The main focus of the lab is to design and implement controllers for different processes and also modeling of the process elements in such a way that the system provides an optimum performance. Major equipments are like level trainer kit, pressure trainer kit, flow trainer kit, Multifunction Process Calibrator, Power Signal Analyzer, Multifunction Air Quality tester.

Biomedical and Soft Computing Lab
