This course serves as an introduction to working in an engineering laboratory. The student will learn to gather, analyze, interpret, and explain physical measurements for simple engineering systems in which only a few factors need be considered. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: Interpret and use scientific notation and engineering units to describe physical quantities; Present engineering data and other information in graphical and/or tabular format; Use automated systems for data acquisition and analysis for engineering systems; Work in teams for experiment design, data acquisition, and data analysis; Use elementary concepts of physics to analyze engineering situations and data; Summarize and present experimental design, implementation, and data in written format; Use new technology and resources to design and perform experiments for engineering analysis.
