Introduction of New Technologies in the ENT CurriculumAbstractClosed-loop feedback control system is an important component of a well-rounded engineeringtechnology program. However, since feedback control systems tends to be a rather complextopic, students react positively to hands-on experiments that assist them visualize control systemsin practical situations, and, in today’s technology, utilizing and integrating computers within thecontrol loop is essential. An innovative feedback control laboratory has been developed in theschool of engineering technology at Daytona State College to fill this need. The laboratory isequipped with some of the most frequently used control systems in engineering and industry. It isdesigned to bridge the gap between theory and real-life problems, and to give the studentsvaluable hands-on experience to help them better prepared for their careers. A number ofpractical feedback control system experiments are being developed that will allow students anopportunity to develop appropriate transfer functions and control programs for closed-loopsystem with a computer in the loop.
