ME-301 - Measurement techniques
This is a theoretical and practical course on the use of various experimental techniques related to mechanical engineering. The physical background, practical implementation, and limitations of common measurement methods will be taught through video lecture by various lecturers. The theoretical knowledge will be put in practice through independent group projects where students pick a topic and a question, design experiments, and measure different physical quantities such as force, strain, temperature, flow velocity, structural deformation and vibrations, etc. to solve their question.
This course is part of the mechanical engineering training for students in bachelor 2nd year.
Build different functional measurement set ups from scratch. The students can choose what metric to measure.
Number of students
There are usually 100-110 students doing this project.
