At the completion of this course, the student will;
- be able to analyse and translate a simple scientific problem into research questions and draw up an error analysis,
- be able to systematically set up and carry out scientific research and record it in a (pre-)structured journal,
- have experimental skills such as the use of measuring equipment, dealing with equipment documentation,
- be able to process and interpret the measurement results in a scientific experiment and draw conclusions from them,
- be able to carry out an error analysis and error processing in a scientific experiment,
- be able to process measurement results using Python.
Lab Course 2 is a sequel to Lab Course 1 from the first quartile. There a basis has been laid for experimental assignments based on a research question. In this practical exercise, the emphasis is placed more on the design side. A standard journal is used for a design assignment. On the basis of specifications, we are asked to realise and test an (electronic) set-up. There is also an in-depth research assignment that links up with thermodynamics.
The assessment plan for this course will be published no later than 2 weeks before the starting block of the course on https://www.utwente.nl/nl/tn/onderwijs/toetsschemas/
