DF 157 - Fundamentals of Mechatronic Systems

Credit Hours: 3

This course is designed to teach the student fundamental topics in mechatronics including electronics, mechanical systems, microcontrollers, control software, data acquisition and interfacing, sensors, actuators, and feedback control. This course will focus on both theory and hands-on practical applications using microcontrollers, as well as interfacing microcontrollers and PC's with mechatronic components.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • explain the fundamental topics in mechatronics including electrical and mechanical systems;
  • program microcontrollers and control software;
  • integrate and interface these various systems using a personal computer with the use of sensors, actuators, and motors;
  • write control software using "C" programming language; and
  • set-up and troubleshoot automated systems.
