Comments Offered in Summer through the Engineering Cooperative Program.

  • Student will have an ability to build up a correct dynamic model of a complex mechanical or electromechanical system by a divide-and-conquer approach that makes use of physics, constitutive laws, geometry, and whatever other information one may have about the system.
  • An ability to use linear and nonlinear system simulation and analysis tools to study transient and frequency response of systems.
  • An ability to work with modern dynamics lab equipment.
  • An ability to design dynamic parameters in order to meet dynamic performance requirements such as a bound on vibration transmission.
  • An ability to understand and design rudimentary feedback controllers to meet performance specifications on dynamic response.
