Modernizing the Way We Teach Controls:
A Progress Report from Quanser

October 6, 2015 at 2:00pm EDT

Sponsored by:

Control has been a core ECE or EE course for decades but more recently, but teaching control in an effective and relevant way has become challenging in the face of related, more modern disciplines such as mechatronics and robotics. This is a timely discussion as we begin debating how we further very contemporary topics such as the Internet of Things and cyberphysical systems. This Webinar presents a the current progress of Quanser’s extensive collaborations with academic and industrial partners to establish a modern framework for teaching control systems within the context of complex applications and engineering trends. Topics include the evolution of hands-on control labs that focus on skills to complex design activities, and application verticals such as robotics and industrial mechatronics, and IoT. Quanser, as a company, offers a unique perspective, as it is both a producer of modern control-relevant devices (hence a consumer of graduates), and an integral part in the delivery of modern education through its lab systems and courseware. Wherever possible, practical case studies and examples will be drawn from various progressive collaborations with institutions and industrial partners.

  • Learn how to address trends such as the Internet of Things within the conventional curriculum framework
  • Discover specific technologies and products for a comprehensive modern approach to complex system design
  • Learn how to sustain leadership in your undergrad program with leading, contemporary lab pedagogy
  • Find out what progressive industries are demanding in the modern control, mechatronics, robotics, and related curriculum
