Overview

Description

Measurements are performed in order to calibrate and analyze process performance. A goal for the accuracy and precision of any system is strongly dependent on the process measurement. The result of sound knowledge in process measurement and control is better-qualified technicians and less equipment failures. An expert knowledge on the process measurement is a must for a technical staff to work more efficiently on the industrial systems and processes they are responsible for.
This course is designed to help students to understand the principles behind the measurement of parameters for the proper monitoring and control of equipment.
After finishing this course, students will have expert knowledge they need to keep plant systems and equipment running as efficiently and inexpensively as possible.
