The Dynamic Systems & Controls area focuses on principles and methods for designing and controlling engineered and natural systems. A broad-based perspective inspires a creative engineering approach to applications involving systems comprised of multiple interacting energetic devices or processes having a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. Specific areas of concentration that contribute to this effort include acoustics, applied mechanics, bioengineering, computational sciences, constitutive behavior and design of materials, electro mechanics, control and information theory, multibody dynamics, and system dynamics. Typical application areas include novel transducer designs, biomechanics at the cellular and human scale, dynamics and control of power and vehicle systems, and innovations in signal and information theory. Graduates from this program may be found in the automotive and aerospace industries as well as in national research laboratories and start-up industries.
