Introduction to Sensors, Measurement, and Data Analysis

IDEA 215
Spring 2022
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Integrated Design, Engineering & Applied Science Minor

This course is an engineering fundamentals course supporting the Integrated Design, Engineering, and Applied Science (IDEAS) minor. It will involve a sequence of hands-on projects that introduce students to basic measurement devices and data analysis techniques using inexpensive modern sensors, a microprocessing platform (Arduino), and a computational software package (MATLAB). The course will provide foundational knowledge of available resources and techniques that allow students to more confidently implement measurement systems in subsequent courses of the IDEAS minor and better understand experimental devices used in scientific research activities. Students will complete a final team project of their choice (with approval) exploring areas of interest in measurement, data analysis, machine learning or other avenues. Some previous programming experience is expected. Prior experience with Arduino, Raspberry Pi or other physical computing platforms are beneficial, but not required.
