  • Overview

    The purpose of this module is to further develop students' competencies in mechatronic system analysis and design. It deals with combined electrical, electronic and mechanical systems, control system design, nonlinear analysis and appropriate software tools.

    Learning Outcomes
    1. conduct the required background research related to mechatronic systems and control and be able to search for, access, review and evaluate publications on given related topics
    2. develop and analyse system models for electronic, mechanical, electro-mechanical and other systems
    3. design appropriate continuous and discrete -time control systems
    4. critically evaluate the effectiveness of controller designs for physical systems
    5. present and apply simulation theory for physical system modelling and control
    6. implement the simulation and control of electromechanical systems using appropriate software tools
    7. analyse the behaviour of nonlinear elements common to mechantronic systems using graphical frequency and state-space response techniques
    8. effectively discuss the design, simulation, modelling and analysis of mechatronic or related systems by written means

Course Disclaimer

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.

Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
