Approved electives
GEL621Advanced Command Strategies
2 credits
In this course we will be studying neural networks using the Multi-Layer-Perceptron Network (MLP) and Radial-Basis-Function (RBF) in detail, as well as Learning Algorithm. After, we will describe some of the control methods using neural networks. Then comes the fuzzy logic (principles and fuzzy logic control) and the integration of fuzzy methods in neural networks. Then we study the Kalman and the WienerHopf filters.
GEL636Industrial Maintenance
2 credits
In recent years, industrial maintenance has seen many significant advances. This is due to many factors, including sophisticated equipment and severity norms on safety and security equipment. This course is designed to provide students with the fundamental principles of industrial maintenance, and it covers the following topics: maintenance function, system failures, corrective and preventive maintenance, dependently, cost reliability, organization and control.)
GEL622Industrial Programming
2 credits    |    Pre-requisite: GEL559
In this course, we will study PLCS in detail as well as how to use them and their programming methods. A detailed study of Grafcet, Ladder and Programmable Controllers will be presented. After we familiarize students with the fieldbus CAN, I2C, MODBUS and Ethernet Industrial.
GEL672Industrial Programming Lab
1 credits
Students will learn about IEC 611313 programming using Beckhoff’s TwinCAT (System Manager, PLC control and ADS); development of human machine interfaces using InduSoft; and the application to power measurement, stepper motors and servomotors.
GEL638Machines Diagnosis Methods
3 credits    |    Pre-requisite: GEL554 And GRT561
This course is designed to present the methods of electrical machines diagnosis in the industries. It covers the following topics: faults of rotating machines and their diagnostics; modelling the faults of stator, rotor and winding in the electrical machine; closed loop diagnosis of asynchronous machine; observer based fault diagnosis; thermal supervision of rotating machines (asynchronous machine); and diagnosis using neural network methods. Each method will be described and presented with an application.
3 credits    |    Pre-requisite: GEL554
Mechatronics is a design philosophy involving a complete integration of mechanical engineering, electronics, control theory and computer engineering in order to design a product. It is based on an interdisciplinary approach involving many disciplines concurrently and allowing flexibility and adaptability by replacing some mechanical functions by electronic processing. After introducing basic elements of a mechatronic system, the course presents methods of modelling, analyzing and controlling engineering systems based on modern technologies and allowing the students to follow an interdisciplinary approach starting from the earliest stages of the design.
3 credits
The purpose of this course is to provide an introduction to microcontroller families: Motorola, Intel, Microchip. We will be studying the internal resources and programming of Microchip PIC microcontrollers, as well as developing multiple practical applications.
GEL577Microcontrollers Lab
1 credits
The main objective of this course is to apply different microcontroller topics and peripherals, introduced using the assembly language, physically. To do so, the EasyPic6 board is used along with the MikroBasic program to write down the program. A simulator and a conversion to assembly language are found within this program.
GEL632Renewable Energy
3 credits    |    Pre-requisite: GEL554
The course introduces the different sources of renewable energy: solar energy, wind energy, water energy, biomass energy. It also provides the fundamental concepts of power grid and microgrid integration using green energy sources. For each application, exercises and design problems are given throughout the course. Students’ oral presentations play a major role in understanding contemporary issues and the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
GEL673Renewable Energy Lab
1 credits
In this laboratory, students will learn the sizing, the installation, the characteristics, and the optimum design of each renewable energy source and system. We will focus on photovoltaic panels, solar water heaters, wind turbines, and fuel cells.
3 credits
By the end of this course the students must be able to imagine and describe the motion of any robot. They will learn the skills to be able to analyze the velocities, singularities and force transmissions involved.
Common Core
GEN516Scientific English
2 credits
The English 516 is designed for students working on their thesis. It gives them the opportunity to enhance their writing abilities and develop their critical thinking. It is designed to provide rigorous training in advanced reading, critiquing, synthesizing and researching. It attempts to help students achieve greater competency in reading, writing, reflection, and discussion emphasizing the responsibilities of written inquiry and structured reasoning. Students are expected to investigate questions that are at issue for themselves and their audience and for which they do not already have answers. In other words, this course should help students write about what they have learned through their research rather than simply write an argument supporting one side of an issue or another. In addition, students deliver one oral powerpoint presentation based on their writings.
GEL620Advanced Control
3 credits    |    Pre-requisite: GRT561 Or GEL510
The purpose of this course is to provide an in-depth study of the numerical control of sampled systems, including a detailed study of nonlinear systems with Microcontroller Based Applications.
GEL671Advanced Control lab
1 credits
The main objective of this lab is to apply different topics learned in the basic control system course and the advanced one using Matlab and Simulink. Also, some new topics are introduced, such as the identification, the calculation of the PID controller, the idea of fractional calculus applied to the generalized PID controller and much more.
GEL631Generation and Transport of Electrical Energy
3 credits    |    Pre-requisite: GEL554
This course is designed to provide students with the fundamental principles of electric energy production and distribution. Several types of power stations are presented and compared. The process of energy transmission is studied next. Finally, a particular attention is paid to the alternators and transformers (modelling and construction), that are the main electrical components involved in the process of energy production and transmission.
