|NAME OF COURSE/MODULE:||SENSORS AND INSTRUMENTATION|
|NAME(S) OF ACADEMIC STAFF:||Prof. Ir. Dr. Ahmad Faizal Mohd. Zain|
|RATIONALE FOR THE INCLUSION OF THE COURSE/MODULE IN THE PROGRAMME:||Electronic Instrumentation plays an important role in metrology. Students would be able to develop and apply measurements principals and techniques to industrial and real world quantification of physical and natural quantities. Electronic engineers are almost always faced with measuring these quantities with the least error possible.|

|OBJECTIVES:||1. Introduce the fundamentals of sensor systems: sensors, and instrumentation
2. Provide the students with an integrative and multidisciplinary experience by building a complete measurement system
3. Allow the students to develop instrumentation and data acquisition technqiues using modern equipment and software tools
|LEARNING OUTCOMES:||Upon successful completion of this course students should have the ability to:
CLO1: Classify the essential concepts, principles and theories of sensors and transducers. (C5)
CLO2: Construct experiments on of sensors and transducers. (P4 – PO10)
CLO3: Display the ability to solve the problems related to sensors instrumentation. (A3)
|TRANSFERABLE SKILLS:||Students should be able to develop problem solving skills through a process of lectures and tutorials.
|TEACHING-LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT STRATEGY:||
|Definitions and examples of measurements and their limitations: resolution, accuracy, sensitivity. DC and AC bridges. Noise in electronic systems and amplifiers. Error calculations.
Oscilloscopes: analogue, digital, and sampling. Phase locked loops, oscillators, and frequency synthesizers. Phase noise. Sampling and analogue to digital conversion. Oversampling.
Counters, Timers: Time and frequency measurements. Microwave measurements: Network and Spectrum Analysers.
Physical principles of sensors. Conversion of physical properties to electrical quantities. Examples of sensors to measure physical and natural phenomena.
