It is difficult to compare these two fields of engineering as they are quite different and have their own value. But for the sake of the question, let us analyze the two branches in various aspects:


1. Electrical Engineering is about working with electrical circuits wherever Instrumentation Engineering is more concerned about the various instruments that are being used in the households and the industry. The former engineers work in electrical and power sector whereas the latter work in the instruments manufacturing industry.

2. As an Electrical Engineer you need to learn about the circuits and their functionality whereas as an Instrumental Engineer you will be working on the measurement and technical devices and will be developing them.

3. As an Electrical Engineer there are plenty of opportunities to work in public sector organizations, and also in the private sector. As an Instrumentation Engineer you are most likely to work in the private sector as there are limited public sector opportunities.


5. Electrical Engineers generally work in the power plants and electricity generating units, which is not a very comfortable place to work. You need to be physically fit for that. Coming to the Instrumentation Engineers, they often get large and comfortable places to work on.

6. Electrical Engineers often need to work outdoors as well and are not just confined to their desks, On the other hand, Instrumentation Engineers spend most of their times in designing and manufacturing the instruments and therefore are often confined to office premises.

7. The opportunities for both these types of engineering are very much both in India as well as abroad.

Therefore, there are plenty of opportunities for you in both these engineering fields. You need to consider your interest and aptitude if you want to excel in your profession. Please keep above seven points in mind and then decide which branch would be more suitable for you.
