The computer is an electronic device whose design and manufacture utilizes a great deal of instrumentation and control engineering concepts. A student of computer engineering has to be exposed to the relevance of these fundamental concepts in the design of computer circuitry.


This course aims at:

  • Enabling student   understand  that control systems are a daily phenomena, that virtually everything needs feedback, that electronic or electromechanical systems most times include a feedback loop, either explicitly or implicitly.
  • Giving the student knowledge of analog and digital control engineering concepts.


  • Knowledge of procedures for measuring and improving the reliability of digital components within measuring systems.
  • Knowledge of the formal standards governing instrument calibration procedures and measurement system performance.
  • An  introduction  on the topic  of sensors  and their  use within  instrumentation systems.
  • Knowledge of the principles and theory of measurement
