It is essential to measure things accurately and to understand their engineering characteristics for successful use. This course focuses on understanding the fundamental principles in the measurement of physical quantities which are important in engineering, and covers basic electric and electronic circuits and applied analytical instruments. Additionally, this course allows students to understand the preconditions for measurements, differences between theory and reality, accuracy and error, and the relation between measurement and design.
This is an introductory course to understand the importance of other courses in the Department of Transdisciplinary Science and Engineering.
Students will be able to understand the concepts of accuracy, error, noise, standard, uncertainty, and the measurement principles of physical quantities and analytical instruments in this course, so that they can acquire the ability to understand the real meaning of measurement results. This course does not however include proficiency in the operation of measurement instruments.
