    The Instrumentation with Applied Physics honours degree programme at Glasgow Caledonian University provides a solid foundation for the formation of engineers specialising in measurement and instrumentation. The main advantage of developing an instrumentation and measurement theme together with applied physics is that the graduates are equipped with an understanding of a wide range of physical proc...

    Process measurements instrumentation and control is a multidisciplinary subject area combining traditional disciplines in science and engineering. Hitherto, measurements and instrumentation have been regarded as artisan in that the training required was provided in-house by employers. The complexities inherent in the new era of intelligent systems and automation have made the subject area much bro... View full abstract»

  • Measurement science versus measurement technology in the engineering curriculum

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):113 - 118
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1300 KB)

    Measurement education within many engineering curricula may be described as `elementary' and `traditional'. In this paper it is argued that this style of presentation, with its emphasis on `recipe' and traditional measurements, is increasingly inappropriate for the requirements of modern engineering practice. This paper outlines two contrasting undergraduate units (subjects) in which measurement e... View full abstract»

    In the undergraduate teaching of sensors and instrumentation systems Glasgow Caledonian University uses joint projects involving a physics student and a chemistry student working together on a relevant industrial problem. This type of project provides a rich environment for active learning, which is essential for the development of the transferable skills required by industry. The major advantages...

  • Statistical engineering: the key to quality

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):123 - 127

    The importance of statistical methods as a fundamental element of engineering is beginning to be recognised, though rather belatedly. Historical evidence suggests the statistical skill of engineers in the UK is lagging behind that of their opposite numbers in other countries. The lack of a sound statistical element in many engineering degree courses must be a contributory factor. A course in quali... View full abstract»
