ME 455 Applications of Mechatronic Systems


3 cr.


ME 311 and ME 324

Course Description

This advanced course is intended to equip students with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of key mechatronic concepts and their applications to the robust design of mechatronic products and systems for consumers and industry. Core aspects are combined with practical industrial applications and are presented in an optimal way for understanding.  A collection of case studies drawn from a variety of industries (complete with parts, lists, setup, and instructions) are used to support the mechatronics design methodology.

This course which builds on the skills introduced in ME 311 and ME 324 will help students to deepen their knowledge of system integration and Mechatronics system design process. It also develops concepts related to robotics applications, plus advanced topics of mechatronic system design like design for testing and fault-tolerant design.   The course, like ME 324, also provides a real life experience related to the practice of mechatronics engineering.
