Course Description of EESM 5900Q Special Topics: Modern Robotics: Theory, Development, and Case Study

This course introduces the basic principles, development, and state-of-the-art of robotics. The course starts from the basic theory of robotics, including spatial descriptions, kinematics, Jacobians, and dynamics. Then, this course introduces the components and skills for robot development, such as actuators, sensors, control methods, and programming tools. Lastly, some state-of-the-art robotic topics for case studies, such as unmanned vehicles, humanoid robots, soft robots, micro/nano robots, etc.


Course Description of EESM 5900S Special Topics: Engineering Thinking: From Research to Entrepreneurship

This course aims to introduce you to the fundamental principles of engineering thinking and its application in research and entrepreneurship. Throughout the course, you will explore the creative process of generating ideas, formulating problems, and finding solutions through research. Additionally, you will learn how to identify the unique value of a solution and its potential for commercialization. The course will cover a wide range of topics, including creative thinking, idea generation, intellectual property, funding acquisition, presentation skill, legal procedures, branding, and team management. By the end of the course, you will have gained a preliminary understanding of the engineering innovation process and the skills and knowledge necessary to transform an idea into a successful business venture.
