Robotics, Control and Systems
2nd Cycle Studies - Mestrado
Real-Time Systems; Planning and Management Techniques; Probability and Statistics; Ethics, Communication, and Leadership
Theoretical-practical classes with presentation, using audiovisual means, of the concepts, principles, theories, and methodologies, and with the presentation of practical examples.
The practical part of the course is composed of practical laboratory classes, or, alternatively, by field work; and is focused in the accomplishment of tasks associated to practical works that require the application and combination of different concepts
The objective of the course is that students acquire competencies required to have knowledge and apply the fundamental concepts concerning Systems Engineering (SE), as well as analyse, understand, and design systems using ES techniques.
Acquiring competencies in analysis and synthesis, critical reasoning, problems solving, autonomous learning, adaptivity to new situations, auto-critique and auto-evaluation
Program introduction; Principles and fundamentals of systems engineering (SE); Project and system life cycles; Systems engineering and safety standards; Support, design, and realization processes; Technical management, configuration management; Quality assurance; Dependability and safety; Requirements; Architecture; Preliminary design, detailed design and code, implementation, integration, verification, and validation.
