MET 48200


This course covers fundamental concepts and applications of practical mechatronics. Emphasis is placed on product design and systems integration. The course involves the functional relationships between mechanical structure, sensor data, precision actuators, power resources, embedded microcontrollers, control logic, and drives. Basic concepts in mechatronics and common elements of mechatronic systems are introduced, supported by hands-on experience with components and measurement equipment used in the design of mechatronic products. A final team-based project applies this knowledge and skill to design and build a mechatronics system.
