Measurement Technology

The course builds upon the lectures ETiT I – III, Mathematics I – III, as well as Electronic Circuits.

  • BSc. ETiT, BSc. MEC, BSc. MedTec, BSc. WI-ETiT
  • Summer semester
  • approximately 250 students
  • 2 SWS lecture, 1 SWS exercise (4 CP)
  • Module number: 18-kn-1011

The lecture covers the topics measurement signals and measurement equipment (oscilloscope, laboratory instruments), measurement uncertainty (statistical distribution) and disturbance variables, basic measurement circuits, principles of A/D conversion and filtering, selected non-electrical measurement principles (force, flow, temperature).

The exercise focuses on the lecture topics with typical examples and applications. The lecture contents are closely connected to the contents of the measurement lab, that is also included in the module. This allows for a prompt practical application of the theoretical concepts.

Slides and sample solutions as well as video recordings of lecture and exercise are supplied via Moodle. Furthermore, several tests allow autonomous reviews of prerequisites and course content.

The module aims at providing the necessary abilities to analyze a measurement task, to find suitable solutions, and to evaluate the quality of the results.
