Skills to be acquired in this module
Students will learn the basics of physical experimentation, the use of modern instrumentation, data collection and analysis using appropriate hardware and software. They deepen lecture material through their own experiments. They acquire the skills for planning, implementation, evaluation, analysis, and reporting of physical experiments and presenting of results using multimedia tools. By working in groups, they gain competencies in the areas of teamwork and communication.
Module contents
Introduction to software for scientific data analysis, analysis and assessment of measurement uncertainties, analysis and verification of measured data, fitting of functions to measured data, dealing with modern measurement techniques, carrying out experiments in the fields of mechanics, electricity, optics, nuclear radiation, electronics, signal acquisition, signal processing.
