M E 445: Mechatronics in Control & Product Realization

  • Catalog Description:
    The course will cover fundamentals of electromechanical control systems with a focus on subsystem design impacts at the system level. Students will learn how to integrate microcontrollers into products for control and/or instrumentation and learn how to create intelligent interfaces. * Motor & sensor interfaces * C programming * Control computer system architecture * Software and hardware principles for computer control The following experience would be extremely advantageous to have coming in but in not assumed: Experience designing/fabricating/debugging digital circuits and active/passive analog circuits. Experience in any function based programming language (Matlab/Python/Java/C/C++). Experience with Electrical & Mechanical CAD tools (Altium Designer etc./ Solidworks etc.).

    Moodle and D2L are being retired. Already, many Engineering courses are in Canvas rather than Moodle. Rather than using the Moodle links below, it is recommended that you use the Learn@UW site (learnuw.wisc.edu) to gain access to all of the LSM choices available to campus.
