The System Dynamics and Controls Laboratory is the only MIT Mechanical Engineering laboratory on the undergraduate level that is associated with courses in system dynamics, modeling, and controls. The laboratory is used by approximately 100 students per semester. The purpose of the System Dynamics and Controls Laboratory renovation project is to design a prototype laboratory workstation that will serve to not only replace outdated analog equipment with facilities more reflective of modern technological applications, but also to review and improve upon the intellectual challenges and educational purposes of the laboratory. The primary objectives of the project included:
The task of implementing the prototype workstation into a full-functioning laboratory has been taken over by Professor Seth Lloyd, and is slated for completion in time for the Spring, 1996 semester.
