Details of Value Addition courses :
Name: Certificate Course in Electrical and Electronic Instrumentation
Duration: 2 weeks
Significance of Course: The undergraduate students of B.Sc degree will get add-on qualifications and knowledge of technical value simultaneously while pursuing their B.Sc degree course. Students, who have done add-on courses, can get preference for jobs in Industries, can set up their own small scale manufacturing, processing service or marketing unit. The area of work for pass outs will be designing, manufacturing, servicing etc. of various systems involving instrumentation and will help in developing an ability towards market survey for ascertaining the availability of products and their specifications, price selection, cost estimation and report writing. The course if pursued simultaneously with Physics as the core discipline at the undergraduate will strengthen the knowledge of core discipline and help those who would like to pursue higher studies in Physics at the Post graduate level/Research.
