What is Control & Instrumentation Engineering?

Control and Instrumentation Engineering constitutes a crucial aspect of various industries, ensuring the smooth and efficient operation of complex processes. Control engineering involves the design and implementation of systems that manage, regulate, and direct the behaviour of other devices or systems. Its primary goal is to maintain desired outputs or behaviours within specific systems. Instrumentation engineering focuses on the development and implementation of devices to measure, control, and manage industrial processes. This involves the use of various instruments to monitor and control physical quantities such as temperature, pressure, flow, and level.
