| || ||The goal of the course is to introduce students to the basic modern solutions and methods of physical quantities measurements. These represent more than 95 % of all measured quantities in the laboratory and industrial areas. The course should also present sensor and physical quantities measurements importance in technical and non-technical fields, science and generally in information technologies.|
| || ||The course presents basic sensor principles, their parameters and construction. It deals with instrumentation, non-electrical quantities measurements concepts and procedures. It also presents the differences between conventional electrical measurements of the electrical quantities and non-electrical quantities on the real industry systems. Also the optical sensors, optical fibre sensors, data collecting and acquisition processes are presented.|
|Knowledge and skills required for the course:|
| || ||Fundamentals of physics, electrical and electronic engineering.|
|Learning outcomes and competences:|
| || ||Course graduate should get basic knowledge and facilities in sensor field and the most commonly measured non-electrical quantities, including measurement concept design and results process and evaluation.|
