Course lecturers



Students are introduced to the specifics of process signals and measurements in the industrial environment, techniques of conversion of process variables into electrical signals to gain better understanding of measurement procedures as part of automated processes. Present to students the possibilities of selecting a process measurement instrument regarding the requirements of accuracy, reliability and cost, maintenance and calibration requirements. Present software applications for collecting, processing and displaying process measurement data.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. identify the specificities of measurements in the industry

2. define measurement methods and devices regarding specifications of an industry plant

3. classify the measuring sensors by type and their performance

4. name the methods for measurement signals processing and their transformation into digital format, and technologies for transmission of measurement signals

5. identify interference that occur in the industrial environment and define protection measures

6. select the type and characteristics of measuring sensors and measuring devices for a specific process measurement task
