This course is a senior or beginning-graduate level elective for electrical and computer engineering majors. The goals are to impart an understanding of electromechanics from theoretical and experimental bases. The successful student will be able to explain how a given electromechanical devices works, and justify the explanation mathematically. Further, the student should be able to conceive a device that is capable of meeting performance criteria, though detailed design is not part of the course. The student should also be able to understand and articulate a broad range of application areas, including emerging areas.
