MECH 217 Measurement in Mechatronics F | 4.25


Lecture: Yes
Lab: Yes
Tutorial: No
This course is composed of online instruction in measurement theory and active lab modules that provide hands-on practical experience making measurements and drawing conclusions from them. On completion of the course, students will be able to: Identify and Quantify measurement objectives in practical engineering applications; Apply statistical analysis, including uncertainty, for interpreting test results; Specify, Select, and Apply transducers, acquisition systems, and procedures to measure pressure, strain, temperature and position; Apply physical principles to predict static and dynamic system performance for pressure, strain, temperature and position measurements; Install and test a micro controller system for data acquisition and control; Acquire and process digital and analog data; Formulate conclusions supported by data and comparison of results to appropriate models; Discuss the limitations of data employed, key findings, trends evident, uncertainty and error; Students will use mathematical and numerical skills typically acquired in  MTHE 225 & 272 .
