Cheating will not be tolerated. Because the nature of these labs, data collection will have to be done in
groups. However, data analysis and reports must be of the students’ own words. Anyone caught
presenting work that is not his/her own will receive a zero on the assignment and possible referral to
the proper authorities on campus.
Course Objectives 1
1. To further students’ training in engineering experimentation, data acquisition, and experiment
design. In particular, it is expected that students completing this course will have significant
skills to design experiments. [d, c ,b, k, I]
2. To give students the opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge obtained in Engineering
core courses to an assortment of physical experiments. [a, e, c]
3. To give students an opportunity to apply methods of experimental uncertainty analysis
presented in ENGR 300. [a, b]
4. To sharpen students’ skills in engineering report writing and oral presentations. [g]
Performance Criteria 2
Objective 1
1.1 Students will demonstrate that they can use a computer data acquisition system to collect
and analyze experimental data. [2]
1.2 Students will demonstrate that they are familiar with common measurement devices
including strain gages. [1,2]
1.3 Students will demonstrate that they can design simple engineering experiments. [3,4]
Objective 2
2.1 Students will demonstrate that they can apply the basic theory of beam flexure (strains,
stress, and deflections) to an experimental system. [1,2]
2.2 Students will demonstrate that they can apply the basic theories of fluid statics and
dynamics (manometer equations, Bernoulli equation) to applicable experiments. [1,2]
Objective 3
3.1 Students will demonstrate that they can perform an uncertainty analysis for an
experimental system. [2,3,4]
Objective 4
4.1 Students will demonstrate that they can write a competent formal report for an engineering
experiment. [2,4]
4.2 Students will demonstrate that they can write a competent technical memorandum about
an engineering experiment. [2]
4.3 Students will demonstrate that they can give a competent oral presentation. [5]
