Measurements and Instrumentation
This course covers the fundamental concepts of measurement and signal acquisition. Through theory and experimentation, students will be introduced through the four main components of taking a measurement: converting physical phenomena to a measurable signal, conditioning the signal, acquiring the signal, and analyzing the signal. Students will learn about the fundamental theory and explore what actually goes on when you use a device to measure a physical phenomena. Upon completion, students will know how to design a measurement system to measure real-world phenomena and the trade-offs involved in designing such a system.
