Control, Design and Manufacturing Research Projects
The control, design and manufacturing academic area offers instructional and research opportunities for students who are personally challenged to attain the expertise required to design or control the behavior of a system in a dynamic environment. Instructional offerings furnish students with a foundation for developing prototype systems and for improving the performance of existing systems. These offerings provide such emphasis as elastodynamic analysis, computerized design, active control in automated machines and manufacturing systems engineering.
The research endeavors of its faculty reflect a close association with current industrial-type situations. Faculty have research ongoing in the areas of engine acoustic impedance modeling, the control of energy systems in buildings, concurrent engineering, robotics, artificial intelligence, CAD, process control, microprocessor applications and computer-aided manufacturing.
