A 10-Year Mechatronics Curriculum Development Initiative: Relevance, Content, and Results--Part II
Krishnan, M.; Das, S.; Yost, S. A.
IEEE Transactions on Education, v53 n2 p202-208 May 2010
This paper describes the second and third phases of a comprehensive mechatronics curriculum development effort. They encompass the development of two advanced mechatronics courses ("Simulation and Modeling of Mechatronic Systems" and "Sensors and Actuators for Mechatronic Systems"), the formulation of a Mechatronics concentration, and offshoot research activities in the mechatronics area. The first phase involved the design of an "Introduction to Mechatronics" course and the infusion of mechatronic activities throughout the curriculum and in outreach activities and has been described in a companion paper "A 10-Year Mechatronics Curriculum Development Initiative: Relevance, Content, and Results-Part I" (IEEE Transactions on Education, vol. 53, no. 2, May 2010). (Contains 8 figures.) [For Part I, see EJ900571.]
