10 Credits SPRING

Cannot be taken with: PHY348

Aims/Description: The module will teach Labview software, and allow students to experiment with instrumentation and basic electronics. These skills will be useful in further years of study, particularly with regard to the Level 3 and 4 projects. These skills are also useful in future employment in both academic and industrial science and engineering where being able to develop laboratory instrumentation to solve experimental problems will be highly desirable.

Teaching Methods: Laboratory work, Independent Study
Assessment: Classroom testing, Practical skills assessment, Project/ portfolio
