The main objective of Mechatronics and Contro class is to expose the engineering graduate students to the multi-disciplinary and synergistic use of mechanical, electrical and computer engineering in order to design improved products and processes. The class is designed to equip the students with theoretical and practical knowledge to take on electro-mechanical design challenges that are available in most of the engineering applications in today’s world. The class uses the fundamentals of automation, precision engineering, control theory, sensors, and actuator technologies in order to solve the encountered problems in various engineering disciplines.The course covers computer integration of electro-mechanical systems, sensors and transducers, actuators, signal conditioning, interfacing, mixed dynamic systems modeling and simulations, data acquisition and instrumentation as well as real time process monitoring and control. In this class, both hardware and software issues are emphasized in detail. The lectures are also supported by students’ hands-on experiments and projects.
I was one of the assitants actively contribute the class content as well as the teaching to the students during the lab sessions. I had thought this class three semesters.
