MTRE 3710: Mechatronics Engineering Fundamentals
This course provides fundamental skills for the mechatronics engineer plus technical writing experience. Topics include sensors and actuators, especially pneumatics and DC motors; programming and interfacing with the AVR microcontroller; and robot kinematics and obstacle avoidance with mobile robots.
MTRE 4001: Modeling and Feedback Control of Dynamic Systems
This is a control system course tailored for Mechatronics Engineering students. While it covers all topics in a traditional control system course, some additional topics, such as modeling of mechatronics systems, controller design of mechatronics system, and vibration control, are covered as well.
MTRE 4010: Advanced Controls
This course is an advanced study of modern control systems focused on control theories and system applications. It covers the basic theoretical methods and mathematical tools for analysis and design of control systems.
MTRE 4200: Robotics Analysis and Synthesis
This course introduces the basic principles of robotic manipulators. Students will learn how to derive the mathematical models, plan trajectories, and design controllers for robot applications. Software tools, such as MATLAB, are employed to analyze and simulate the robot system.
