Learning activities and methodology
Lectures and practical classes in the computer room. In the latter students will see examples of the contents presented in the lectures, as well as LabVIEW basics. Laboratory work. Guided practices in the electronics laboratory for electronics set-ups. Also, based on that set-up and specifications, students will realize a development project using data acquisition card and LabVIEW software design tool.
