Many engineering activities require the use of instrumentation. This may involve ensuring a bolt is tensioned to the correct torque, a machine is not vibrating excessively, the temperature in the tailpipe of a gas turbine is not exceeding the design limits or determining the extension of a hydraulic ram in a robotic arm. The aim of this course is to provide an experience that will lead students to a deep understanding of the fundamentals of Engineering Instrumentation. This course provides an opportunity to learn the basic principles and application of instrumentation. Students will be given a number of lectures outlining background theory, tutorials and a practical construction project.
