ENEE461 Controls Laboratory
Course Description: Also offered as ENME461. The course consists of two parts. The first part is a conventional undergraduate laboratory course in which the students perform a series of five experiments in controls. The experiments are progressively more difficult. Each experiment ends with a written report.
In the second part of the course the students do a control project. The projects are done by teams of two. The students must submit a pre-proposal, a proposal, and a final report as part of their project.
