Courses

EGR433: Transforms and System Modeling (senior level, Sp16, Sp17, Sp18, Sp19)

Course Description: Students will gain an understanding of the relationships between inputs and outputs in mechanical, electrical, and electro-mechanical systems, as well as learn the fundamental tools for control system analysis and design. Students will be curious about the transforms and modeling concepts, able to connect those concepts to real-world engineering systems, and apply those mathematical tools to improve the engineering systems and create values.

EGR598: System Control and Optimization (graduate level, Fa16, Fa17, Fa18)

Course Description: This is a mixed style graduate-level control class. The first part of the class will be lecture-based, and the instructor will introduce fundamental knowledge of state-space modeling and control. The second part of this class features a course project that students will study and apply advanced control techniques to real-world problems, including robotics, energy systems, autonomous vehicles, and chemical process. Students will start the course project early in the semester, and there will be dedicated class time for literature reviews, research discussions, and milestone presentations. The class will end with a final presentation and report. Each group will also make a poster and present their work in the innovation showcase at the end of the semester.

NEW: EGR598 will be offered in Fall 2018 semester [Flyer]!

ASU101-TPS: The ASU Experience (freshman level, Fa18)

Course Description: Students will learn about ASU's mission as the New American University, the importance and benefits of an entrepreneurial approach to problem solving, solutions to sustainability challenges, and the importance of social embeddedness. Additionally, through various course discussions and assignments, students will examine the concept of academic integrity and its potential impact on their future, gain awareness of the value of engaging in research activities, and learn about taking an interdisciplinary perspective.
