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. Project: Guided practices will be carried out for the assembly of the electronics of an instrumentation system. In addition, based on this system, a development project will be carried out from specifications using data acquisition cards and the LabVIEW software design tool.
