Department: BSc Electro-Mechanical Engineering
Module Description: The need for existing and new types of sensors is critical. This is due to the emergence of increasingly complex technologies, health and security concerns and of a burgeoning world population. Depending on their application, the design, fabrication, testing, and use of sensors, all require technical and nontechnical expertise. This module examines the theoretical foundations and practical applications of electronic, electrochemical, piezoelectric, fibre optic, thermal, and magnetic sensors and their use in the modern era.
