The goal Introduces basic principles of sensors and actuators, based on changing one form of energy to another. Present the basic principles of choosing the optimal energy conversion related with the adequate choice of sensors and actuators in industrial applications. Prepare students to work in a multi- disciplinary research.
The outcome Students are prepared to apply sensors and actuators in industry
