Prepare students for multidisciplinary problems in automotive, aerospace, and Internet of Things applications with a project-based approach for controls, sensors, actuators, and mechatronics systems.
Rethinking Mechatronics Education
Controls theory and mechatronics curriculum require an active learning approach to translate theory to engineering intuition and prepare students for the complexity of applications in research and industry.
Learn how Tsinghua University partnered with NI to develop a complete project-based approach throughout the curriculum to teaching automated systems and mechatronics.
Engineering laboratory solution for project-based learning that combines instrumentation and embedded design with a web-driven experience, delivering a greater understanding of engineering fundamentals and system design.
The Quanser Controls Board for NI ELVIS III is a versatile servo system designed to teach the fundamentals of DC motor control, with an optional pendulum module to teach advanced topics in non-linear control.
The Quanser Mechatronic Systems Board is the only solution that takes students from component-level knowledge of sensors, actuators, and interfacing fundamentals to a system-level understanding of mechatronics design.
myRIO provides educators with an embedded, WiFi-enabled solution to deliver an engaging approach to empower students to apply theory to learning controls, investigating mechatronics, and designing imaginative capstone projects.
Labs for Teaching Controls and Mechatronics
Educators can develop a guided approach to controls with interactive teaching resources, complete laboratory experimentation and a platform developed for project-based learning with NI ELVIS and the Quanser Controls Board.
Give your team and your students access to the software they need when they need it. Offered in a variety of types and sizes, NI Academic Site Licenses include the software, training, and services you need to accelerate discovery in and out of the classroom.
