Robotic Control Option
This option is available within the Mechanical Engineering major at the following location:
The Robotic Control Option offers Mechanical Engineering majors an opportunity to concentrate their coursework in the design and control of robotic systems. This transcript-visible degree option prepares students with the ability to apply the principles of kinematics, rigid body dynamics, and control theory to study engineering systems as well as the ability to design, analyze, and program robotic systems. This option responds to industry demand for mechanical engineers who can design and develop robotics systems for a broad array of applications ranging from automated manufacturing to healthcare.
Option Code: A007
Upon successful completion of the program, students will meet the following learning outcomes:
- Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
- Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
