Professor Kendra Kim introduces students to integrated modeling, design, analysis, manufacturing and control of smart electromechanical systems in RBT479: Mechatronics. Students will produce a project related to electrical components and analysis, intelligent controls, sensors and instrumentation, mechanical components and analysis, digital processing and hardware, drives and actuators, or communication and interfacing.
Learn how to prototype and explore the key steps of the engineering design process in DBM215: Prototyping Tools and Practices. Professor Ron Zabawa will teach students how to properly define a problem and provide a solution, whether it’s a product, a service or something else entirely. Through reviewing case studies of the humble beginnings and vast evolution of world-changing products, this course will illustrate the importance of the cycle of listening, building a prototype, testing, learning and repeating.
CSC438: Algorithms, Frameworks and Design Patterns for Artificial Intelligence prepares students to solve applied AI, machine learning and deep learning problems in the field of artificial intelligence. In this course, Professor Tony Hinton will teach the ability to design, code, test and improve AI systems using algorithm-driven designs. This is a project-based class—students will gain experience modifying or replacing existing algorithms. Students also have the opportunity to build intelligent, anonymous software bots and make swarms!
SCI388: Science and Math in the Real World is a combination course of physical science and math taught by Professors Heather Peters and Nathan Glover. Designed to introduce students to the wonders and complexities of the world around them, students will learn to connect math and science in an integrative way. This course also covers the scientific method, using math to justify reasoning and constructing models to represent real-world phenomena.
New to maker studio equipment and maker-style technologies? DBM150: Introduction to Maker Studio is an introduction to the use of common maker equipment. This course is intended for non-digital maker and fabrication majors to explore creating entry-level props and functional prototypes. Maker-style technologies and techniques provide tools and pathways for designers from any of UAT’s programs to rapidly create versions of their ideas. Bring your ideas to life with a physical form, as they evolve toward applications.
