Simon’s Answer

My engineering career was in the chemical industry. So my response is geared to my situation. Instrument engineers design control system that run our chemical plants. This position has been filled by chemical, mechanical or electrical engineer with experience in chemical plant controls. Controls engineers design systems to control and manage our plants. Process engineers help determine what type to use. They determine the reliability needed and also back up safety systems. Instrument engineers also design "loop sheets", electrical distribution to power the instrument, and screen graphics could be part of the position. It is an exciting field that is changing very fast. A lot is learned with field experience under the supervision of a senior engineer. I hope this helps.

Tom’s Answer

A career in instrumentation engineering can be very rewarding and the work is very valuable. Instrumentation engineers will design control systems that govern or regulate different processes. You will determine the types of sensors / data collection devices required to collect information regarding a process (temperature, pressure, velocity, elevation, voltage, current, etc.) and the system / software that will control the processes.

Each project will offer a different problem solving challenge (in a good way) and each workday will be different. Experience in the field is very transferrable across industries and opportunities are available in almost all cities so you will have lots of career flexibility. Some examples include healthcare, industrial processes / plants, manufacturing, transportation, and smart cities. (Put the word "smart" in front of anything and an instrumentation engineer was part of it!)

The work of instrumentation engineers touches all of us in our every day lives (most of us just don't realize it.)

aditi’s Answer

Instrumentation engineering is the branch of engineering that specializes on the principle and operation of measuring instruments that are used in fields of design, configuration of automated systems in electrical, pneumatic domains, etc.

The required tasks are very domain dependent; instrumentation engineers typically work for industries with automated process with the goal of improving the productivity, reliability, safety, optimization and stability. Instrumentation engineers are commonly responsible for integrating the sensors with the recorders, transmitters, displays or control systems. They may design or specify installation, wiring and signal conditioning. They may be responsible for calibration, testing and maintenance of the system.
