Complex systems analysis
Field of study: Mechatronics
Programme: Mechatronic systems engineering (ME8)
Semester: III,
ECTS credits: 2
Course instructor: dr hab. inż. Adam Długosz
Course description

The course discusses the ideas of the complex systems in mechatronics. Coupling between different methods of artificial intelligence, methods of optimal design, CAx systems and multiscale models are considered. Laboratories concern the practical use of different engineering systems and creation the proper interfaces between them to make and use complex systems. Students have the opportunity to examine and analyze the behavior of such systems.
