The department incepted in 2001 with a B.E program in instrumentation and control engineering with an intake of 30. In the last two decades the department has been developed into a major department in the institute. The department started B.Tech program in Electronics and Instrumentation in 2018 with an intake of 120, two M.Tech programs in Embedded Control & Automation and Internet of Things with an intake of 18 each. The department also offer PhD in areas related to sensors, instrumentation and control. Department hosts LabVIEW academy and Center for cyber physical systems giving added advantage for students and faculty.
The department has well established industry standard state of the art laboratories catering teaching and research. Programs offered by the department are multi-disciplinary in nature which includes electrical, electronics, instrumentation and control. It enriches the students to excel in the area of automation where the students are exposed to various subjects related to measurements and control. The students passing out are having wide scope to get career opportunities in major manufacturing, process, energy, oil and natural gas industries as well as research opportunities in highly ranked institutes and universities within and outside the country.
The department has 29 well qualified faculty members, 14 of them with PhD in diverse areas. Scientists from Industry and professors from institute of repute like IITB are amongst the adjunct faculty of the department.
Government funded research projects are being undertaken by the faculty of the department. Department organizes Control Instrumentation System conference CISCON as an annual event and regularly conducts Faculty development programs, Short term training programs and Guest lectures on subjects in thrust areas.

For me MAHE is a place with ample opportunities to grow professionally and personally.
Learning is an awesome experience at Manipal. This is the best place to be for students.
MAHE is giving us wings to fly and providing us with resources necessary to make it big in life.
MAHE has taught me the value of organisation and to be systematic in all my work.
My experience at MIT has been great from the beginning.
I’m glad I choose Manipal University.
