        The goal That PhD students learn about trends in the development of modern instrumentation and measurement systems, to enable them to model, analyze, design and integrate the elements of advanced instrumentation and computer IO design. To enable students to work in the field of computerized instrumentation and measurement systems in scientific research organizations and at the universities.
        The outcome Upon completion of this course, PhD students should know how to: - analyze, model and design elements and to integrate modern modular or distributed measurement system, - the results of their research present in the form of a scientific article acceptable for the publication in a leading domestic scientific journal or international refereed conference.
