The course introduces students to the commercial software `Labview'. Labview is an extremely versatile and widely-used commercial software for capturing and processing measured data and controlling machinery. It is widely-used in different mechanical engineering related applications. This module spans from very basic programming to building more complex data capture and monitoring interface.
Students follow a series of on-line tutorials or submit exercises at each stage to ensure they follow and fully understand the subject. These tutorial files are unique for every student. This is followed by a larger project that students carry out for themselves based on their own interests and discussions with their tutor/supervisor.
