System dynamics and control is one of the major courses in mechanical engineering which aims to develop the abilities for modeling and analyzing dynamic systems, and designing feedback controllers. Main contents of the course cover basic knowledge, theories and methods as well as practical skills.

      The course is organized with lectures and computer classes, with the purpose to deliver specialized knowledge in dynamic system modeling and analysis, and develop problem-solving skills in mechanical engineering. It is expected that this course lays a solid foundation for other engineering-related courses.
