Join us for the next Mechatronics Education Innovation webinar on Wednesday, April 25 at 2 pm EDT.
In this webinar, Dr. James Mynderse from Lawrence Technological University will introduce his institution and the Mechanical Engineering Department and provide an overview of their bachelor-level Robotics Engineering and master-level Mechatronic Systems Engineering programs. He will share some examples of the Mechatronic Systems courses and their modifications for a particular senior/graduate mechatronic design course to incorporate problem-based and entrepreneurially-minded learning.
Dr. James A. Mynderse is an Assistant Professor and a Director of the M.S. in Mechatronic Systems Engineering Program in the A. Leon Linton Department of Mechanical Engineering at Lawrence Technological University. Dr. Mynderse joined Lawrence Tech from Purdue University where he received Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering. Dr. Mynderse teaches at the undergraduate and graduate levels in dynamic systems and control, modern control systems, mechatronic design, and mechatronic system integration. His courses include active and collaborative learning and problem-based learning modules which improve student participation and learning. He also serves as the faculty advisor for the Lawrence Tech Baja SAE team. His current research interests include dynamic systems and controls with applications to piezoelectric actuators, microfluidics, unmanned aerial vehicles, and additive manufacturing
