Abstract

The aim of this study was to establish practical competence indicators for an Automatic Measurement Technology Course (AMTC) of industry-oriented needs, and this development is expected to promote technical quality and student ability. Industrial supervisors, engineers and university scholars responded to a Delphi questionnaire, and the Kolmogorov-Smirnov One Sample Test was applied to obtain competence indicators for this course. The results confirmed the following: 1) Four items were revealed as the competence indicators for Virtual Instrument; 2) Eight items were revealed as the competence indicators for LabVIEW Programming Design; 3) Four items were revealed as the competence indicators for the Interface of Signal Transmission; 4) Four items were revealed as the competence indicators for Sensing and Measuring Devices; 5) Three items were revealed as the competence indicators for Automatic Measurement Platform; and 6) Four items were revealed the competence indicators for Automatic Measurement Applications. These indicators will be utilised and developed into suitable teaching material.
