Proposed Short Courses

for

University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Division of Continuing Education

by

Dr. Mike Chaney


Descriptions of three alternative short courses in the area of control systems are listed below. The descriptions
include course objectiv
es, topics, and target audience.



Each course would be appropriate for registered engineers seeking professional development hours (PDH's)
required to maintain their licenses.



Course lengths could be adjusted by changing the breadth or depth of material c
overed, or by combining
material from two or more of the courses described below.



Courses will use modern control tools, such as Matlab/Simulink, to demonstrate topics
