ME:5114 Nonlinear Control in Robotic Systems, Fall 2017

This course is intended to expose students to nonlinear analysis and control systems theory. The course is focused on Lyapunov-based analysis methods and associated design techniques. The first segment of the course introduces definitions of stability for autonomous and nonautonomous systems leading to a Lyapunov framework. Based on the developed Lyapunov-based analysis tools, basic and advanced design tools for contemporary engineering problems are presented including state-of-the-art techniques.


ME:4113 Control of Mechanical Engineering Systems, Spring 2017

This course is focused on theory, analysis, and design of controls of mechanical engineering systems, including mechanical, robotic, and electromechanical systems. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the concepts behind classical and modern control techniques, and applying these techniques using the MATLAB programming environment.


ME:3351 Engineering Instrumentation, Fall 2016

Basic elements of measuring circuits (bridges, voltage dividers, shunts, transformers); laboratory instrumentation (oscilloscopes, multimeters, power supplies, signal generators); amplifiers; frequency response principles; sensors; data acquisition, signal processing, filtering using Labview.
