IET and National Physical Laboratory collaborate on new publication.

We have collaborated with the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) to produce a Beginner's Guide to Measurement in Electronic and Electrical Engineering.

The guide provides an introduction to measurement, discussing the significance of good measurement and its relevance to electronic and electrical engineering. It will be especially useful for electronic and electrical engineering students.

The new publication provides sufficient information to enable an electronic or electrical engineer to carry out good measurement practice, learn about the International System of Units (SI) and understand how their measurements relate to national standards. Through the practical application of theory, it demonstrates how to read instrument specifications, introduce a defined measurement procedure and carry out uncertainty analysis.

Good measurement is crucial for a successful career in electronic or electrical engineering and this guide will help engineers improve their measurement capabilities.

Barry Brooks, IET President, said: “We are delighted to have worked with the NPL on this joint publication – a publication that shares and advances knowledge to enable you to make a positive difference as an electrical or electronic engineer. This guide will equip you with the guiding principles and good practice to measurement in electronic and electrical engineering.”

You can download a free electronic copy from the NPL website.
