Study Objective:

To provide students with basic information about physical principles of phenomena and appliances presently applied in advanced technologies enforcing application in mechanical engineering. Further to provide them basic information concerning the up-to-date data acquisition system, relevant special sensors to monitor engineering quantities and HW and SW solution in use nowadays. The important part of the course is student?s activity in laboratory where they may individually solve problems related to the lessons.
