Courses

Dynamical systems

Provides the students with basic notions and tools for the analysis of dynamic systems. Shows them how to develop mathematical models of dynamic systems and perform analysis in time and frequency domains.

Micro/Nano robotics

The objective of this course is to expose students to the fundamentals of robotics at small scale. This includes a focus on physical laws that predominate at the nano and microscale, technologies for fabricating small devices, bioinspired design and control paradigms, and applications of the field.

Mechanobiology: how mechanics regulate life

The objective of this course is to expose students to the fundamentals of mechanobiology. We will highlight the technologies that enable the study of living systems including mechanical manipulation and characterization, along with computational modeling frameworks.

Robotics practicals

The practicals can include the following topics:

  • Teaching Robots to Accomplish a Manipulation Task
  • Experimenting with haptic interfaces
  • Controlling a serial robot ABB IRB 120
  • Control of the Micro Delta Direct Drive robot
  • LiniX, linear axis, assembly and control
