This course provides fundamentals of the control engineering, which is applied to various automation devices. The main topics
of the class are Laplace transforms, transfer functions, transient characteristics, block diagrams and frequency characteristics.

Students have to master fundamentals of control engineering. Credits of this course are required in order to take the "Basic
Control Engineering".

- student can solve simple differential equations applying of the Laplace transformation, and derive transfer function of the system
- student can obtain time response to elementary functions
- student can obtain frequency response and Bode diagram including physical interpretations
- students can draw a block diagram of given system
