Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Basic electronics and measurement technology.

Intended learning outcomes

To give good knowledge of how to program and connect sensors to a computer controlled measurement system within technical chemistry. To give experience in planning and working in project form. After the course the student should be able to

  • explain principles for and solve problems where the computer is uesd to control a chemical process
  • Explain the use of and how to calibrate sensors for the measurement of common chemical quantities
  • Explain the function of data acquisition cards and measurement computers
  • create simple LabView programs for measuring/controlling with a data acquisition card
  • plan and carry through a small project
  • write a structured report in a scientifically correct manner

Course content

Basic LabVIEW programming. Use and programming of data acquisition cards. Function and signal conditioning of sensors for measuring common parameters within technical chemistry. Control of simple processes. Project work within chemical analysis engineering. Documentation in the form of a written report.

Teaching and working methods

Lectures, laborations and a project work.
