At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. apply scientific principles to a particular situation in order to obtain a numerical solution to an engineering problem
  • LO2. understand concepts of instrumentation
  • LO3. completion of simple design problems based on presented theory
  • LO4. understanding of the professional standards set for mechanical measurements
  • LO5. investigate available literature in order to build up background information on set problems. This may be done using library and/or on-line resources.
