Measurement in Technological Processes
- define the processes in technical systems
- understand the terminology of measurement systems
- define the components of measurement systems
- analyze the measurement uncertainty
- build the measurement system
- test the measurement sytem
Forms of Teaching
The lectures will be implemented using the various techniques and tools such as powerpoint presentations, flash movies and other presentation materials. Some lectures will be organized from the industry experts.Partial e-learning
Presentations as well as other interesting material will be published on the web pages as additional learning tools to the students.Field work
Students will visit several partners from the industry where they will learn the possibility of using the knowledge gained through the course in their future jobs.Laboratory
Several experiments and laboratory exercises will be complementing the lectures
