Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

understand the application of control and automation in mechanical engineering professional practice.

apply the concept of stability and its importance in systems analysis and control

form systems models of basic mechanical, electrical, and electromechanical systems

employ classical control system design methods in the design of feedback loops to achieve a specified dynamic behaviour from a system.
