Course Objective Mechatronic products have a very complex structure due to they are occured with many engineering fields are applied all together. The use of modeling and simulation techniques are necessary for design, production and operation of such complex mechatronic systems. Modeling and simulation of mechatronics systems have become an indispensable tool, when the actual tests and measurements are dangerous, expensive or not possible especially. Therefore, a lot of modeling and simulation software were developed and successfully implemented. These provides very realistic results.
The purpose of this course is to gain the necessary knowledge on modeling and simulation to students who will need both in their academic periods and in their working lives.kılmaktadır. Özellikle gerçek test ve ölçümlerin tehlikeli, pahalı ya da mümkün olmadığı mekatronik sistemlerde modelleme ve simülasyon vazgeçilmez bir araç haline gelmiştir. Dolayısıyla bir çok modelleme ve simülasyon yazılımı geliştirilmiş ve bunlar gerçeğe çok yakın sonuçlar vererek başarıyla uygulanmaktadır. Buna paralel olarak günümüzde modelleme ve simülasyon eğitimi yaygınlaşmış ve kaçınılmaz bir hal almıştır.
