A Hands-on Method of Instruction for Feedback Control Systems and Mechatronics
By using a hands-on method of instruction, as opposed to one solely based on theory, students are able to grasp information contained within a subject in an easier manner and retain it at a greater rate. Through the application of this premise it is possible to bridge the gap between educational theory and industrial application. The purpose of this research is to develop an applied method of instruction of both Feedback Control Systems and Mechatronics to undergraduate Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering students at the University of Central Florida (UCF). This will in-turn yield an enhanced union between the classroom and real world application.
