SYS2048 Introduction to Electromechanical Systems

About the Course

Students are introduced to several engineering subjects in electrical, computer, mechanical, and systems engineering and build integrated systems that combine topics from multiple disciplines. Primarily hands-on, the course develops practical knowledge of sensor circuits, amplification circuits, dynamic systems, rapid prototyping, microcontrollers, and data storage. Projects are designed to draw parallels between engineering subjects (e.g., mechanical and electrical dynamic systems) and simulation is used to aid the design process. 

Subjects Covered:

  • Basic circuits, as they relate to sensor interfaces
  • Amplification circuits
  • Dynamic systems, including first- and second-order mechanical and electrical systems
  • Rapid prototyping, including computer-aided design
  • Database design
  • Systems design and analysis
