2.671 is a 12-unit undergraduate course in measurement methods and experimental techniques required of all Mechanical Engineering majors that is typically taken in the junior year. 

The course features a self-directed term-long assignment created by Prof. Ian Hunter to give the students an opportunity to make measurements on something of personal interest to them, referred to as Go Forth and Measure. Many of the students use sensors from Vernier Software & Technology, and the assignment was featured in the Spring, 2005 issue of the Vernier Caliper Newsletter. A list of the Go Forth and Measure titles from the Fall, 2008 class is given here.
