2. Pre-Requisites

No prerequisites, except those imposed by the general curriculum. However, it is recommended to have basic knowledge of theory and analysis of electronic components and circuits, as well as instrumentation systems and the use of sensors.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

The electronic instrumentation of measurement and control is present in the most diverse areas of our world. This area of study is increasingly important in research laboratories, industry, hospitals, the automotive sector, IOT, and UVAs, among others. This course provides the necessary knowledge to understand the technology, operation and conditioning of electronic systems of measurement and control with emphasis on integrated systems, as well as the necessary competencies for the development of different types of systems and applications.

Consequently, this course is related to most subjects of the degree, since electronic measurement systems are an important basis for the development of different areas of work in telecommunications engineering.
