The course introduces sensing and instrumentation for various engineering applications. Major part of the course will consider case studies of sensing and instrumentation for various engineering applications and is suitable for all engineering and non-engineering students to learn about sensing and instrumentation.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||10 credits (5 ECTS credits)|
This course covers the fundamental tools of sensing and instrumentation that are currently used by both engineers and scientists. The transversal science of metrology is discovered, focused on uncertainty analysis and calibration. A range of sensor technologies is then investigated with emphasis on the underlying physical principles. Electronic circuits for the capture of sensor signals are considered, along with limitaitons such as noise. The course explores instrumentation systems including wireless sensor networks (WSN) and micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS).
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
2x individual design projects [30% each]
