Short description

In the Metrology Project module, students learn how to use measurement instruments (multimeters, oscilloscopes, function generators) and additionally acquire the communicative skills required in the workplace. These topics are learned in a project completed in this module.

Learning objectives (competencies)

Objectives Competences Taxonomy levels
Lerning goals measurement instruments
You have an experienced handling of measurement instruments (multimeter, oscilloscope, function generator) for the measurement of voltages, currents, time-varying signals and you have a basic understanding of frequency spectra and measurement uncertainty.
F, M K3
Learning goals operational amplifier
You can develop and analyse circuits with ideal operational amplifiers using negative and positive feedback.
F, M K5
Learning goals communication

You can:
  • Research different solutions and present the results.
  • Analyse measurement reports and manuals, use them and create them yourself.
  • Present project results.
M K3
Competences in methods, project management, self/social and business management
You can:
  • Recognize knowledge gaps and close them
  • Analyze and structure problems
  • Define and manage projects according to plan and act in the event of deviations
  • Evaluate project ideas according to meaningful criteria
  • Create requirement lists
  • Assess yourself realistically
  • Work in a team and learn to accept and express criticism

Module contents

The following topics will be dealt with on the basis of a project:
  • Multimeter: Functionality, voltage and current measurement, internal resistance, measurement accuracy and measurement uncertainty
  • Oscilloscope: Functionality, measurement of periodic signals and transient signals, averaging, math- function and grounding issues
  • Function generator: Important test signals, source impedance
  • Operational amplifier: Basic circuits and properties
  • Project progress: Document and present
  • Competing products: Analyse and evaluate own and external project documents
