Measurement of different properties is the key in any chemical, physical, thermal, electronic, optical or mechanical process. Accurate and quick measurement allow for identification of errors, explaining of phenomena and prediction of efficiency of different systems. Measurement has been of great importance since the beginning of civilization. Nowadays, we have progressed to digital measurement through sensors and detectors in various fields. This comprehensive course deals with measurement technology, sensors and detectors in different fields of industrial interest. Due to the vast range of all scientific fields, each course will comprise about 1/3 of the written contents for a duration of 5 days. Each course will contain detailed info on the fields of interest.
