Control System Theory has essential applications in Electrical Engineering, requiring a solid understanding of concepts like transfer functions, transient response, feedback, and stability. At California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly, SLO), the emphasis on learn-by-doing and hands-on experience is key to the educational approach. This analysis investigates the potential of updating Cal Poly’s Classical Control Systems Laboratories by analyzing and comparing virtual curriculum offerings, control education at Cal Poly, and curriculum at other universities. In addition to an analytical approach, some Quanser Inc.Ⓡ computer simulation examples are provided for assessment.
