MREN 403 Mechatronics Design IV
In this course, students culminate their learning of mechatronics and robotics, and engineering design, through a team-based capstone design project focused on solving a real-world, industry-level technical challenge, which includes a detailed design phase, as well as robust building and iterative design testing, leading to participation in and external design competition. The course is conducted over two terms. In addition to the design, build and testing of a mechatronics or robotics system, each team is required to demonstrate communication, teamwork, and management skills at a professional level by preparing a formal design proposal, which includes a management plan, providing regular progress reports, and submitting a final design report, together with a formal presentation on the project and its results. Top-placed teams in a preliminary internal design competition will be sponsored to represent Queen's University at an external design competition.
