Electronic Instrumentation


This course provides a knowledge of electronics as applied to instrument systems. Emphasis is placed on practical skills as well as developing theoretical know how.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Describe the characteristics and behaviour of analogue electronic components.

  2. Describe electronic circuits and instrument systems, and explain their behaviour in the context of a restricted theoretical framework.

  3. Carry out precise measurements using a range of electronic test equipment.

  4. Employ mathematical techniques and physical principles to describe and solve problems relating to analogue electronic circuitry and signal-conditioning requirements.

  5. Set up electronic signal-conditioning circuits using a variety of circuit elements to perform specified functions.

  6. Test and troubleshoot analogue electronic circuits/electronic instrument systems.
