    This course is one of the core courses of the BSc and BSc (Hons) in Product Design, Testing and Certification programme. This course is recommended to students who want to learn advanced instrumentation and testing techniques for use in product testing and certification.

    There are no prerequisites for the course.

    This course aims to provide students with:

    • Comprehensive knowledge of instrumentation and testing techniques;

    • The ability to select appropriate transducers and measuring instruments for a given test requirement; and

    • The technical background they need to design appropriate test methods and systems.

    The course covers the following topics:

    • Fundamentals of instrumentation techniques

    • Transducers: Principles and applications

    • Measuring instruments for the testing and certification industry

    • Testing and experimentation: Method development, validation and vertification
