Students of automation technology at Tsinghua University in China are discovering that practical hands-on experience beats hours of theory. They have recently used commercially available real-time control software [Quanser] in a contest to see who could design the best controller to balance a mechanical system.
Dr. Jacob Apkarian, Quanser's CTO looks at the future of engineering and shares a strategy for universities to optimise engineering programs to captivate a new generation of students. This article looks at the benefits multidisciplinary control laboratories can achieve, such as superior reputation for the university, finer graduates, efficient use ...
Tsinghua University, China needed to give students a tool they could easily use to design and deploy their controllers. Learn how QUARC software helped the University’s Automation Department hold an Automatic Control Design competition for its undergraduate engineering students. The students were delighted with QUARC because it saved them time ...
Discover how students at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences are using Quanser's 5 DOF Open Architecture Robot to quickly learn control and robotics concepts, and implement the theory. Hands-on courses that feature practical experiments help to motivate students and draw more undergraduates to Harvard’s Engineering Program.
Read how the use of real-time control challenges, namely Quanser's 3DOF helicopter experiment, is enabling students at Bristol University to quickly explore control systems.
Dr. Wang from the University of Waterloo wants to graduate credible engineers and give them real life experience. Learn how Quanser's rapid control prototyping software QUARC helps him reach this goal. It helps students put mechatronics theory into practice and enables them to build control systems faster, so they've got ...
Learn how Milwaukee School of Engineering leveraged its Matlab®/Simulink® expertise to give their graduates hands-on experience in the lab so they gain a better understanding of control principles and succeed in their future engineering careers using Quanser control experiments.
This 4-page article looks at how universities can achieve a big reputation, produce smarter graduates and make vast savings by opting for multi-discipline control laboratories from Quanser. If engineering departments are willing to pool resources, it's possible to create fewer, high quality, bustling and adaptable laboratories that serve a wide ...
Professor Venkat Krovi, an Associate Professor at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of State University of New York at Buffalo (SUNY), came to Quanser looking for a means to quickly physically prototype a yet non-existent 6 DOF motion platform for his latest experimental research.
