The lectures Measuring Technology, students learn about measurement methods and principles that are used in modern sensors for measuring temperature, pressure, flow rate and flow volume, position levels and for measuring the composition of liquid and gaseous mixtures. Laboratory work is devoted to virtual instrumentation, image analysis, thermography, and non-contact temperature measurement, and pressure measurement, measurement of heat and emission combustion process. The aim is to improve technical understanding of the principles of sensors and the possibilities of their use.
