Course Description : An introductory course for using a computer to solve engineering problems. The course will introduce the concepts on interfacing computers to sensors and output devices and using the computer to control the output functions using feedback from the input sensors. The course will introduce the students to the graphical language LabVIEW and the data acquisition equipment that uses this language. The second half of the course will use Program Logic Controllers programmed in traditional ladder logic and programmed in a mnemonic language and interfaced to switch devices for inputs and output devices such as relays, motor starters and solenoid valves.
