Selected Topics in Measurement Science
Every other year. Odd-numbered years. Autumn
Objectives and Content
Objectives:The course aims to give advanced knowledge of selected methods in measurement technology which has been used in recent research.
Content:The course covers topics such as electrical measurement principles based on permittivity, permeability, conductance and resistance, optical methods and methods based on ionizing radiation as X-ray, gamma-ray and neutron. Measurement methods making use of multiple measuring principles and / or process tomography are also included.
On completion of the course the student should have the following learning outcomes defined in terms of knowledge, skills and general competence:
- is in the forefront of knowledge in selected topics within measurement technology
- can assess the appropriateness of using different sensing principles in measurement technology
The student can
- explain the physics of the currently selected measuring principles, as well as explain the benefits and constraints of using these in various applications.
- substantiate the selection of a chosen sensor principle for a measure applications based on requirements such as precision, measuring range, access to the process, safety, security and more.
The student can
- identify and develop new solutions for challenges in measurement technology.
