Measurements and Instrumentation Upgrades in course based on student responses 1. Lectures with more examples, not review book, slower pace, ½ lec, ½ prob 1. New instrumentation ordered for lab, improving lab notes, shorter intro. 1. PDF writer available in OCC lab, no digital Q or HW 1. Course name may change to represent equal emphasis on lab and lecture 1. Fewer HW problems, assign key problems 1. Request broader coverage in electrical circuits course 1. Overall objectives: Efficient teaching Cover the material needed Students well prepared for subsequent courses and industry 1. Further consideration: text, grading, TA training, consider two lectures/wk

Measurements and Instrumentation Motivation and trends in Measurements/Instrumentation •Measurements and Instrumentation is becoming more important and more multi- disciplinary •Prediction: Sensors will be used on every moving and living thing from the smallest cells to the largest bridges and skyscrapers •Smaller size: Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) •Even smaller size: Nano-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (NEMS) •Higher sensitivity •Bio-sensors to detect cancer, fight disease •New sensing mechanisms (light, microwaves, RF waves, radiation, chemical) •Sensing involves everything from atoms to human senses to the universe
