The System Dynamics and Control Research Laboratory (SDCRL) was founded by Prof. Mansour Kabganian in 1985.

Since its inception in 1985 we have undertaken a variety set of projects in Vehicle Dynamics, Space Systems and MEMS. Research emphasis has been focused in Simulation and Modeling and developing new interfaces for Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing.
