Measurement is the conversion of physical parameters to data. Instrumentation is the automation of measurement. This capability is essential in all modern industrial systems and processes. MECH 368 covers fundamental topics required to develop modern measurement and instrumentation systems including sensors, signal conditioning, and digital readout. This class follows the electronics sections in MECH 220 and 224. Materials covered are designed to provide mechanical engineering students with the framework for future self-study in this area.
