ISTC Students working in an Electronics Lab

This six semester course is a restructured version of “Advanced Diploma in Mechatronics and Industrial Automation” which was started in 1996. On successful completion of the training, the trainees will be awarded “Diploma in Electronics Engineering”


Based on the merit in ISTC Entrance Exam, the candidate will opt for the desired course. Training during first year will be common for both the above courses. After the common training in first year, the candidate will persue specialized course in 2nd & 3rd year as per their excersied option at the time of admission.
