- Given a measurement need, students will interpret which signal characteristics need to be measured and select an appropriate sensor based on sensor specifications.
- Students will be able to obtain a high-quality, digitized signal from a raw sensor measurement by designing and building an appropriate signal conditioning circuit and implementing data acquisition techniques.
- Given an acquired data set, students will be able to program a virtual instrument to perform and present analyses, and to draw conclusions based on the analyses' findings.
- Given a simple measurement need for a common physical phenomenon like temperature, strain, or pressure, students will be able to design and implement an appropriate measurement system, including sensors, signal conditioning, data acquisition, data analysis, and data presentation.
