COURSE DESCRIPTION An introduction to feedback control of linear systems, with emphasis on linear system dynamics, time and frequency response, stability analysis, classical and modern control theories, and design applications. COURSE OBJECTIVE To provide students with practical design skills and tools for the synthesis of engineering control systems. PRIMARY TEXT G.F. Franklin, J.D. Powell, and A.

OTHER  WITHDRAWAL POLICY It is the student's responsibility to withdraw from classes. Instructors have no obligation to withdraw students who do not attend classes, and may choose not to do so. The deadline to withdraw from a class without a "W" show up on your transcript is Monday, February 3, 2014. You can withdraw later, until April 18, but you'll have a "W" show up on your transcript. From April 19 to May 9, you can only withdraw for a documented serious and compelling emergency, with the approval of the dean's office, which expects that you are dropping all of your classes because of the seriousness of the emergency.  ATTENDANCE POLICY Experience has shown that good grades are strongly correlated with attendance, practice, and participation. Class attendance is highly recommended.
