Principles of Engineering|
|Course Cluster: Integrated Design, Engineering & Applied Science Minor|
Students will learn about engineering mechanics, electronic control systems, and physical actuators (e.g., for movement) using a microprocessor platform, sensors and motors. The final project will require a student team to ideate, design, analyze, and optimize a mechatronic system. This course will allow students to better understand components, methods, and challenges in mechatronics systems commonly found in automation and robotics. This course fulfills the project-based Design & Engineering course requirement for the Integrated Design, Engineering and Applied Science (IDEAS) minor degree program.
