Summer 2023 - MSE 110 D100
Mechatronics Design I (3)
Class Number: 1517
Delivery Method: In Person
First year project course designed to provide students with a first exposure to the challenges of project organization. Students are responsible for designing and constructing a mechanical robot optimized to solve a particular chosen task. The engineering challenges of the project are expected to focus half on mechanical design and half on control algorithm design and implementation. Students with credit for ENSC 182 may not take MSE 110 for further credit.
This is an introductory course about mechatronic systems engineering. There are four lab projects during the term. Students groups are formed at the beginning of the term (3 students/team) to tackle the different project challenges.
Student teams develop hardware designs for each project challenge, using a Lego robot kit, then develop software using RobotC, MATLAB, and in some cases Python.
- Written Tests 50%
- Lab. Projects 50%
MATERIALS + SUPPLIES:
1- LEGO EV3 Mindstorm
2- ROBOTC software

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
Students with a faith background who may need accommodations during the semester are encouraged to assess their needs as soon as possible and review the Multifaith religious accommodations website. The page outlines ways they begin working toward an accommodation and ensure solutions can be reached in a timely fashion.
