Divided into three innovative modules, this book will help readers gain a solid foundation in the modeling, design, and control of systems composed of interacting parts. The first module introduces them to what engineers do and what engineering actually involves. The next module develops their fundamental problem--solving skills while examining areas such as modeling of dynamic systems, conservation principles, and control theory. The final module shows them how to apply the material in the real world.
Dr. Jay Brockman is concurrently serving as an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame.
