EECS 1011 3.00
Computational Thinking through Mechatronics
Course Description The Objectives of 1011 are threefold: providing a first exposure to procedural programming, teaching students a set of soft computing skills (such as reasoning about algorithms, tracing programs, test-driven development), and demonstrating how computers are used in a variety of engineering disciplines. It uses problem-based pedagogy to expose the underlying concepts and an experiential laboratory to implement them. An integrated computing environment (such as MATLAB) is used so that students can pick up key programming concepts (such as variables and control flow) without being exposed to complex or abstract constructs. The problems are chosen with consultation with the various engineering disciplines in the Faculty with a view of exposing how computing is used in these disciplines. Prerequisites: None. Course credit exclusions: LE/EECS1541 3.00

Course Description This course is a first course specialized in aerodynamics. In this course the flow over aerofoils, wings, and bluff bodies are studied. Potential flow is used to develop the theory of flow over aerofoils and wings, using classical and numerical methods, such as thin-aerofoil theory, vortex panel methods, and lifting-line theory. Additional topics include compressible flows, supersonic aerofoils and aircraft performance. Prerequisites: LE/MECH 3201 3.00, and LE/MECH 3202 3.00. Course credit exclusions: None.

Energy Conversion and Storage
Course Description This course gives a comprehensive view of energy conversion processes and technologies in the context of the global energy system. A cohesive thermodynamic framework is developed to evaluate any energy conversion process or technology. The framework is used to understand how energy is transformed from a primary energy source to its ultimate end use. The concepts of primary energy, secondary energy, energy-use sectors (industrial, transportation, residential, commercial, and electric power sectors), energy transmission, and energy storage are illustrated. Electricity generation technologies, including fossil fuels, nuclear, solar, wind, and hydroelectricity, are analyzed and compared in terms of efficiency, cost, and environmental impact. End uses other than electricity, including space heating, industrial process heat, and transportation are emphasized. The requirements for transitioning the Canadian and global energy systems to a sustainable system based on renewable and carbon-neutral technologies are discussed. Prerequisites: LE/MECH 3201 3.00, and LE/MECH 3203 3.00. Course credit exclusions: None.

Feedback Control Systems
Course Description This course teaches fundamentals of control design and analysis using state-space methods. This includes both the practical and theoretical aspects of the topic. The students are expected to design controllers using state-space methods and evaluate the control performance and validate if these controllers are robust to system uncertainties and external disturbances. Prerequisites: LE/ENG 4550 3.00 or the following combination of courses: SC/MATH 3410 3.00; SC/MATH 2270 3.00 or SC/MATH 2271 3.00; SC/MATH 2022 3.00. Course credit exclusions: None.
