Goals: Automation and control of manufacturing processes have been vigorously pursued in modern manufacturing to scope with the demand of increased productivity and quality. This trend toward computerization and integration leads to a demand for appropriately trained engineers. The purpose of this course is to introduce essential knowledge in the control of manufacturing systems and processes.
The course consists of two one-hour lectures and one three-hour laboratory. The labs are offered in the Manufacturing Laboratory. The following is the list of the lab topics click here to see the hardware set-up:
