ME-831 Instrumentation, Measurements and Data Acquisition System
Campus PNEC
Programs PG
Session Spring Semester 2017
Course Title Instrumentation, Measurements and Data Acquisition System
Course Code ME-831
Credit Hours 3-0
Pre-Requisutes Basic Electronics
Course Objectives The ability to conduct and design experiments is rated as one of the highest desirable technical skills of engineering and engineering technology graduates. This course deals with the theories and principles involved in experimentation, instrumentation, process measurement, and process control systems. It includes demonstrations and laboratory experiments using computer based data acquisition. Course will provide an introduction to LABVIEW and to virtual instrument creation.
