Course Learning Outcomes

By the end of course, the student will be able to: Learning Outcomes

Ø Evaluate error by statistical approach.


Ø Evaluate error by statistical approach of analog and digital measurement systems


Ø Design analog and digital meters within realistic constraints


Ø Develop solution using attenuators and difference and instrumentation amplifiers to minimize the loading effects and insertion losses of analog and digital meters


Ø Use electrical engineering tools like analog and digital meters, oscilloscopes and spectrum analyzer.


Ø Apply engineering principles of grounding for hazards protection and shielding to minimize the noise.


Ø Piece together sensors, amplifier and attenuator, data conversion principles and digital readouts like LCD, to form a measurement system.
