This is a core module targeted to engineering students of any disciplines. It covers wide-range of topics in mechatronics such as mechatronics design principles, instrumentation and interface, actuators & mechanical loading analysis, and control systems. Several case studies of applications of mechatronics in manufacturing systems are discussed in details. Hands-on sessions are conducted respectively on actuators and control systems. Advanced concepts, future trends, and state-of-the-art development in mechatronics are presented. At the end of the module, students are expected to be able to design and implement useful mechatronic systems.
