The aim of this module is to develop a broad understanding of instrumentation techniques which are used in a wide range of engineering applications. Such understanding will include: the physics and mathematics of sensor action, measurement errors and their control, data conditioning and conversion hardware and relevant signal processing techniques. By the end of the module students should be able to understand the measurement requirements in specific engineering contexts and specify appropriate instrumentation.
