F. J. McGibbon


This paper discusses in detail an undergraduate student industrial project which forms an integral part the degree of Master of Engineering from the University of Glasgow, Scotland. The host company was Mesit Pristroje spol. s r.o., Uherske Hradiste, Czech Republic co-operating with the Technical University of Brno (VUT Brno), Czech Republic. The project carried out was concerned with a contribution to the design and with the testing and development of a data measurement system designed principally for use in the testing of light aircraft. The system designed in capable of recording static and dynamic measurements up to 1000 Hz, and consists of a piece of hardware interfaced with a personal computer running purposely written software. The paper presents a detailed account of the work carried out by the student together with an explanation of the design of the system. Some possible future developments for the system are also discussed. A description of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), used to evaluate the work of a student in a host university or enterprise, is also presented, the project being part of this scheme.
