Dynamic Modeling of Engineering Systems (Undergraduate 3rd year)  
This course teaches the modeling of dynamic mechanical, electrical, thermal and fluid systems. Model formation in input-output and state variable formats will be taught, in addition to numerical simulation of dynamic systems and analytical solutions of 1st and 2nd order models; transient; and frequency response behavior.
