Objective:

Main objective of this course is to enhance engineering students’ experimental skills. Students will be introduced to “modern” measurement devices, computer data acquisition and data analysis methods.

An open-ended project will allow students to demonstrate their ability to develop and test experimental hypothesis. Performing Labs are a group works. Reporting labs are individual.

Lab grade is 35% of the course grade. Students will be graded on the following basis:

Lab Schedule:    

LAB MANUAL: LAB-1-2-3-4-5&6-9-10  , Term Project & Safety-Good Lab Habit, Report Writing, How to operate Oscilloscope :(Analog, Digital)
