Course Meeting, Structure, and Objectives:
Lecture Period: Tuesday 6th and 7th period in room 283 Rogers Hall
The lecture period will be used to develop a basic theoretical understanding of key issues
in experimental/instrumentation design, signal conditioning, analog devices, data
acquisition and sampling, and fundamental sensor applications.
Lab Period: Thursday 6th and 7th period in room 214 Rogers Hall
The lab will be used to provide hands on experience with instrumentation equipment such
as oscilloscopes, function generator, data acquisition boards, bread boarding circuits, and
other practical techniques. Demonstration and assignment labs will be provided and
Additionally, the laboratory will be used to introduce the student
