Recently, robot technologies become a important part of the space engineering. The course teaches the fundamentals of space robots. The demand in the space exploration and development, history, and the basic technologies are explained. This familiarizes students with the advanced technologies in space engineering.
By the end of this course, students will:
-Understand the background and needs of space robots.
-Understand the missions and overviews of space robots.
-Understand the fundamentals of the kinematics and dynamics of space robots.

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
The course materials are provided during class.
The quiz in each class and final report will be assessed.
