New Graduate Student Publications Available in Digital Commons

Mechatronics students in the Mechatronics Playground using industry-standard equipment

by Graduate School

The Graduate School is proud to announce the publication of 54 new dissertations, theses and reports in Digital Commons, the University’s institutional repository. These works from our fall graduates represent the culmination of scholarly research for 32 Ph.D. students, 22 master’s students and 55 faculty advisors. We hope you take time to explore the exceptional work of Michigan Tech’s newest scholars.

This collection features the first publication from our newest interdisciplinary degree program, mechatronics. The publication, titled “Benchmarking Model Predictive Control and Reinforcement Learning for Legged Robot Locomotion,” was authored by Shivayogi Akki, who was advised by Tan Chen from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Interdisciplinary publications collections have their own home in Digital Commons, and each publication can also be found in the department or college collection associated with their primary advisor. The work above by Akki, for example, can be found in the Mechatronics Collection and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Collection.

The Graduate School and Van Pelt and Opie Library work together to ensure that these valuable works are widely accessible and discoverable.
