Stanford has a class called Mechatronics, or something like that. Teams of
3-5 students build a robot to do a task. The task changes from year to year.
It's something like carry some poker chips over there and dump them into a
bin. You have to get more in than the other guy. The rules fit on one sheet
of paper. At the end of the term there is a contest/party. I got to watch
There isn't much analog design, but there is a lot of wiring up motors and
sensors. And lots of firmware. It's a mechanical engineering class.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
