Full course description


This module focuses on transducers and instrumentation in engineering systems, including measurement and data collection, signal conditioning and amplification.


Professor Liyanage C De Silva


Online forums will be used to support the scaffolding of knowledge, understanding and abilities. The teaching style will include video conferencing, discussion forums and activity based learning techniques. The focus of the teaching style will be determined through learning diagnostics, undertaken by students, which will identify learning styles needs. A cooperative learning framework is used as a means of supporting equity for both teaching and learning styles.
