Objectives Students know and understand the motivation, goals, principles and strategies of industrial process measurement technology and can apply them to in-depth problems and generalize the results obtained. They are able to:

  • Analyse and assess measurement tasks in an industrial environment
  • Select a suitable measuring device and associated data interface for a given process variable
  • Evaluate measurement results in the field of process measurement technology
  • Measurement of state variables: temperature, pressure, level, flow
  • Process analysis technology (in particular optical-spectroscopic process measurement techniques)
  • Field buses and industrial networks
  • New developments in process measurement technology
Criteria for evaluation Written and/or oral exam
