Engineering Physics

English language proficiency requirements

Students registering in post-secondary level courses (numbered 100 to 499) will be required to meet the English language entrance proficiency requirements. Students in ELS or the University Foundations programs can register in those courses identified in the University Foundations program with lower levels of language proficiency.

Please note that not all courses are offered every semester.

ENPH 360

3 credits

Interfacing and Virtual Instrumentation

Prerequisite(s): PHYS 232 or COMP 256 and MATH 125 and one of (PHYS 105, PHYS 112, PHYS 093 or Physics 12).

Corequisite(s): None.

Pre- or corequisite(s): None.

In this course students will learn how to create computerized control and analysis equipment for experimental work. This includes interfacing a computer or microcontroller, such as the Arduino microcontroller, to various instruments for data acquisition and instrument control using a state-of-the-art software platform such as National Instrument's LabVIEW. Emphasis is on the practical aspects of interfacing a computer or microcontroller to various instruments including timing issues, real-time data acquisition and instrument control, instrument status, and acquisition speed.

Note: Students with credit for PHYS 392 cannot take ENPH 360 for further credit.
