NIT Silchar offers B. Tech., M. Tech., and Ph. D. programmes in Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering where B.Tech. is the undergraduate programme , M.Tech. & Ph.D. are post-graduate programmes. The details of these programmes are provided below. Read and find out what you need.


The B.Tech. Programme consists of 8 semesters and is a professional engineering degree affiliated with and awarded after completion of 4-years of extensive/vast engineering study and research. Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering students will learn about basic engineering techniques, as other engineering students, during first year course, which includes Engineering Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Engineering Mechanics, Mechanical Activities (Welding, Fitting, Carpentry, etc.). Engineering drawing and Basic Programming. From the second year they are not only exposed to core courses in instrumentation engineering but also to various fields of electronics & computer engineering. This programme is one of those programs in which you may continue in the core domain with very good future prospects, but can also switch to other fields like software, communication, VLSI. This course is widely accepted throughout the world.


The M.Tech. programme in Instrumentation Engineering provides advanced knowledge in various areas of Instrumentation, biomedical engineering & control systems. The programme is designed such that a student can complete it based on advanced coursework alone. However, the students are given the option to concentrate on a problem by substituting some of the courses with equivalent project work.
The standard M. Tech. is a two year programme, where the first two semesters are spent doing courses. A one-year project commences in end of the 2nd semester. The project typically has a strong research component.


The Ph.D. programme is a post-graduate programme focussed on original research, that can lead to publications in premier conferences or journals. It is the highest level of degree that a student can achieve. Scholars are required to do some courses in the first few semesters (course work required can vary based on student background), but soon move on completely to research. Many Ph.D. scholars teaches B.Tech. students and also take labs and tutorial classes. After completing the programme the scholars, on their own, are capable of contributing to their chosen research field.
