MAE 606:01: Special Topics: Drones II Control & Coordination

The course will be focused on modeling and control of multi-agent systems, with experimentation on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). It is taught for students with basic knowledge in automatic control and optimization and it intends to increase their interest in applying advanced control techniques on UAVs in an enjoyable framework favorable to develop creativity, practical and team working skills.

MAE 504:01 Advanced Control I

This graduate-level control course covers the key topics of advanced modern control design: state-space representation, stability, controllability and state feedback, observability and state estimation, optimal LQR / LQG regulators.

The techniques are applied through aerospace or robotic examples and a project.

MAE 471:01 Aircraft Flight Dynamics

The goal of this course is to develop an understanding of the fundamentals of the dynamics and control of aircraft with an emphasis on conventional airplane performance and stability, both static and dynamic. Students are given regular quizzes and a final project to help monitor their progress. 

MAE 451:01 Vehicle Dynamics

This junior and senior-level class provides the opportunity to better understand the equations of motion of ground vehicles.  Tires, slip and traction, braking, aerodynamic effects, and steering are discussed. This course will also introduce you to the modeling and control of autonomous vehicles.
