My Courses

Embedded Systems Fundamentals and Applications in Robotics

Embedded Systems Fundamentals and Applications in Robotics

This course introduces the students in the MECH, CET, and EET programs to the applications embedded systems in designing basic robotic systems or smart devices. Hands-on design activities help students to build prototypes for various robotics applications.

Computer Programming and Applications

Computer Programming and Applications

This course is an introduction to applications and theory of numerical methods. Roots and optimization, linear systems, curve fitting, integration and differentiation and differential equations. This course also involves programming using MATLAB.

Actuators and Sensors Applications in Robotics

Actuators and Sensors Applications in Robotics

This course covers actuators and sensors with applications in robotic systems and/or smart devices. Topics include the selection of sensors and actuators, and signal conditioning techniques in the design of robotic systems and smart devices.

Machine Design (MECH 2410)

Machine Design (MECH 2410)

Application of basic principles of design and analysis of selected machine elements such as brakes, clutches, springs, screws, shafts, bearings, cams, gears and gear trains. Students learn how to design simple and complex mechanical components and systems. The student should be able to synthesize a reasonable solution to a given design problem, analyze the proposed solution, judge its suitability and produce engineering drawings. End-of-term project with the computer-aided oral presentation.

Engineering Structures (NYT01_IND_2340)

Engineering Structures (NYT01_IND_2340)

This course will introduce students to the engineering structures used in building constructions, in civil roadway and bridge constructions, as well as those used in mechanical engineering. First, students will be exposed to different types of structures. Next, students will learn the fundamental concepts of analysis and design. Finally students will study the primary structural elements in buildings, bridges, and mechanical systems. Students are required to produce design project using state of the art CAD/CAE software.
