The exact nature of an instrumentation engineer’s job will vary by the employer’s industry.
With a thorough understanding of the goal, instrumentation engineers then develop suitable equipment or make changes to existing machines or systems. Plans can involve instruments that measure variables, such as pressure or radiation, and may involve complex computer operation
Instrumentation engineers talk with their employer, client, and colleagues about what needs to be accomplished. For instance, a power generation facility may want to lower its emission levels to comply with government regulations. Time and budget constraints also play a role in the planning process.
