Control engineering education at monterrey tech uri icon

Abstract

  • Control engineering teaching at ITESM Campus Monterrey combines advanced didactic techniques, software systems and experimental equipment as instructional tools to achieve educational objectives. A course is designed with the purpose of helping the students to get deep knowledge of process control as well as team work and autonomous learning abilities. International guidelines for the course design are provided by ABET criteria and engineering education colloquies. The chosen tools are used under a principle of practical experience which is basic for engineering formation. Problem based learning and cooperative work provide a didactic framework for the course activities. Blackboard is the internet platform of the course. Matlab and Control Station allow the simulation of control systems. The experimental level process station gives the opportunity to implement and observe the real time performance of the different control strategies. A teaching learning system is proposed based on the synergy of instructors, students, academic contents and instructional tools. © 2006 IEEE.
