Description

Today's world of engineering requires considerable experience and training in ‘designing and drafting principles, and techniques’, to be successful. AutoCAD is a program that helps to create electrical control design, documentation, panel layout, schematic design and project management, and carry out other common design tasks effectively. Technical staff should be aware of basic AutoCAD commands and computer-aided-drafting concepts to draw, design, and draft. This course is designed to help students to understand the fundamentals of AutoCAD commands including Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design and MATLAB concepts. After completing this course, students will have sound knowledge on CAD to prepare neat and accurate electrical engineering drawings for industrial power and control applications.

Instructor

Hadi Harb

PhD, MEng, MSc

 

Hadi has more than 15 years of experience in the development and management of Artificial Intelligence and Audio Signal Processing projects.

From 2000 to 2004 he pursued his PhD working on content-based multimedia indexing. He then worked as a research engineer at Centrale Lyon Innovation SA from 2004 to 2006. During his PhD and research engineer work period, he participated in many R&D projects in collaboration with world-class institutions such as INRIA, France Télécom R&D and IRCAM. He issued for 2 patents and published 17 articles in known international scientific journals and conference proceedings.

From 2006 to 2015 he co-founded and managed Ghanni, a company specialized in multimedia content recommendation and identification. Several European radio stations and websites licensed Ghanni’s music recommendation technology. In 2015 he restructured Ghanni to transform it into a consultancy company in the domain of Artificial Intelligence where he acts as the principle consultant. His current interests are in the application of Artificial Intelligence techniques to natural language understanding and human-like process control.

Hadi holds a MEng (2000) in electrical-electronic engineering. He earned his MSc in 2001 and PhD in 2004 both in computer science from the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées INSA Lyon, and the Ecole Centrale de Lyon respectively.
