The hallmark of the newly configured Rowan College of Engineering undergraduate program is multidisciplinary education with a laboratory emphasis. The development of a new multidisciplinary control laboratory upholds our hallmark very well. We attempt to address the demand of industry for acquiring control engineers (1) with a broad set of skills and a comprehension of the diverse practical applications of control and (2) who can move across rather artificial program boundaries with great ease. Multidisciplinary experiments that integrate hands-on experience and software simulation are investigated. The experiments expose the students to Proportional, Integral and Derivative (PID) control using a DC motor, engine speed control apparatus and feedback process control. This enables electrical, mechanical and chemical engineering students to learn the fundamental theory and physical implementation of various types of control systems.
