Course Description:
ENME 362 introduces the theory and practice of control systems engineering. Control systems are an integral part of modern society that are found in a broad range of applications from aircraft and spacecraft to robots and process control systems. In this course students will learn how to describe systems mathematically and analyze those descriptions in the time and frequency domains. This course includes integrated studios that allow students to master the MATLAB engineering computing environment and provide an introduction to the LABVIEW graphical programming development environment for data acquisition and control, data analysis, and data presentation.

Learning Outcomes:
In this course the student will develop and/or refine the following areas of knowledge:

Outcome Measurement and Assessment:
Student progress in achieving the desired outcomes for this course will be monitored and measured through the use of the following:

Course Outcomes:
The study of control systems engineering is essential for students pursuing degrees in mechanical, electrical, aerospace, or chemical engineering. This course lays critical groundwork for further study in:

Professional Outcomes:
The most measurable long-term outcome from this course is the student’s resulting ability to identify, formulate and organize engineering problems in a conceptual form as well as in terms of mathematical and physical models. Understanding control systems enables students from all branches of engineering to speak a common language and develop an appreciation and working knowledge of the other branches.
