Course description and aims

Based on Engineering Measurement 1 (TSE.A232) and as a preparation for TSE Experiment (TSE.A351), 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.

Student learning outcomes

Students will be able to understand 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.


Measurement, Measurement principles, Analysis

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

The class will be taught by six instructors.

Course schedule/Required learning

  Course schedule Required learning
Class 1 Voltage and current Prepare and review the class content using course materials on OCW-i
Class 2 Magnetic field, light, electromagnetic wave, high-frequency
Class 3 Position, force, fluid
Class 4 Strain measurement
Class 5 Energy, temperature, radiation
Class 6 Analytical instrument 1 (SEM, TEM, X-ray diffraction, EPMA, EDX(EDS), AES, XPS(ESCA), SIMS, EBSP, RBS)
Class 7 Analytical instrument 2 (Basis of chromatography, gas chromatography, HPLC, Detectors for GC and HPCL)

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.


Text book specified by each instructor.

Reference books, course materials, etc.

Instructors will provide a handout.

Assessment criteria and methods

Achievement of student learning outcome will be evaluated with results of final exams and/or reports.
