Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Student understands the principles of the measurement and its evaluation. He learns analyzing properties of selected analog and digital instrument. Student gains a basic knowledge of automated measuring systems. He learns design and implementation of selected methods for measuring electrical and non-electrical quantities, as well as processing and interpretation of measurement results.
Prerequisites and co-requisites: none
Course contents:
