Postgraduate Course: Applications of Integrative Sensing and Measurement (ISM) (PGEE11127)
|School||School of Engineering
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||The course covers a representative range of applications of integrative sensing and measurement. Five applications are covered in taught material, each application being addressed over a 2-week period comprising typically five to six lectures, one case study and one tutorial or examples class. In addition an assignment, spread through a large part of the semester, covers at least one additional application.
The syllabus will cover 5 or more applications of ISM (typically 4 by taught delivery, 1 or more by assignment) each year. By way of example, it is proposed that the applications to be covered in the 1st year of delivery include - 3D, astronomical, automotive, autonomous motion, environmental, homeland security, in-vivo, microfluidic.
Sample Lecture Syllabus for Academic Year 2014/15:
Week 1: Introduction to Applications of ISM
Weeks 2,3: ISM for autonomous motion
Weeks 4,5: Environmental ISM
Weeks 7,8: ISM for homeland security
Weeks 9,10@ In-vivo ISM
Week 11: Revision classes
Week 1: Introduction to assignment - Automotive ISM
Weeks 2-10: Assignment is carried out
Week 11: Assignment due
Entry Requirements (not applicable to Visiting Students)
||Other requirements|| None
Course Delivery Information
|Not being delivered|
| By the end of the course the student should be able toż:
- Prepare or assimilate a detailed ISM system specification or application requirement.
- Compare, contrast and select the most appropriate ISM technique(s) to meet the requirements of an application or range of applications.
- Design an ISM system to meet an overall system specification or application requirement.
- Integrate the results of a range of ISM modalities to provide a 'whole is greater than the sum of the parts' picture of a system.
- Understand and appreciate the constraints and limitations of a given ISM system in a given application or range of applications.
