§ Undergraduate Courses
EECE 461 Control Systems I, Fall/ Spring semester
(3,0,3). This course provides an introduction for electrical engineering seniors to mathematical modeling of physical systems and feedback control philosophy, which can be used to design single-input/single-output control systems and to realize desirable transient and frequency response
Co-req: EECE 444, Pre-Requisites: ENGR 218 and EECE260, both with a minimum grade of C.
- To be able to analyze the dynamic behavior of a continuous time invariant system both in the time domain and in the frequency domain.
- To be able to evaluate a given system’s performances (transient behavior, type, stead-state error, step response parameters ....)
- To be able to synthesize a control system to meet given design specifications.
- To be able to assess the performance of a control design as applied to a given plant.
- To be able to assess and evaluate the performance of a given system using Matlab before and after the controller synthesis.
§ Graduate Courses
ENGR 517 Control Systems I, Spring semester
