CSEN908: Design and Implementation of Mechatronic Systems
as an engineering discipline, is the synergistic combination of
mechanical engineering, electronics, control engineering, and
computers, all integrated through the design. Mechatronics brings
together areas of technology involving drives and actuation systems,
sensors and measurement systems, control systems, microprocessor
systems and systems integration and analysis.
course is a project-based course that presents the concepts,
principles, issues, and techniques for managing design, development
and analysis of actual mechatronic systems.
The course also pretends to provide
a broad introduction to the field of robotic and automated systems
from both hardware and software perspective.
course will cover practical topics relevant to the design
of mechatronic systems. Topics covered include but are not
limited to: sensors and actuators, industrial robotics, mobile
robotics, industrial automation, mechatronic systems, flexible
manufacturing systems and computer integrated manufacturing.
This course is open to grads and undergrads and has no formal
prerequisites. However, it would be helpful to have a basic
knowledge in mechanical design, control engineering, electronics,
- to understand the technologies behind
modern mechatronic systems.
- to provide methodological fundamentals
for the development of fully automated system.
- to teach students how to develop
a robotic or automated system project focusing on the hardware and
software integration, and
- to apply the acquired knowledge
for developing a mechatronic system.
