Course Description (Undergraduate Calendar): Unified treatment of measurement of physical
quantities; static and dynamic characteristics of instruments – calibration, linearity precision,
accuracy, and bias and sensitivity drift; sources of errors; error analysis; experiment planning; data
analysis techniques; principles of transducers; signal generation, acquisition and processing;
principles and designs of systems for measurement of position, velocity, acceleration, pressure,
force, stress, temperature, flow rate, proximity detection, etc. The course includes demonstration of
various instruments. Lectures: three hours per week. Tutorial: one hour per week. Laboratory: two
hours per week, alternate weeks. (Prerequisite: ENGR 370 or MECH 370)

Design Soft Skills:
Design: An ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and to design systems,
components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health
and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
Engineering Tool Usage: An ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources,
and modern engineering tools, including prediction and modeling, to a range of engineering
activities, from simple to complex, with an understanding of the associated limitations.
