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:
Sep.13-15 *Lab 3- Introduction to Electric Output Transducer (5%) Grading sheet
Sep.20-22 *Lab 4- Introduction to Computerized Data Acquisition (5%) Grading sheet
Oct.04-06 **Lab 5&6- Measurement of Temperature and Pressure Cont. (10%) Grading sheet
