Course Description

Mechatronics is the synergistic integration of mechanism, electronics, computer control, and information technology to achieve a functional system. This course centers around the modeling and analysis of the basic hardware and software components of PC-based data acquisition and control, and electro-mechanical systems including sensors, actuators, signal processing, microcontrollers, mechanisms, and PID motion controls. Hands-on experience of the applications and programming of simple mechatronic systems is provided. The method of assessing students includes quizzes, homework assignments, exams, and laboratory reports.
