The Joint EC/MAE/SE Dynamics and Control Laboratory at the Graduate School of Engineering and Applied Science (GSEAS) of the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) aims at supporting the control, robotics, and autonomous systems related courses offered by the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) Systems Engineering (SE), and others. It can also be used for educational activities within the Consortium for Robotics and Unmanned Systems Education (CRUSER).

A wide variety of experiments offered by the lab is based on the educational equipment manufactured by Quanser, Inc., resides in two buildings, Spanagel Hall (Sp-521) and Bullard Hall (Bu-212E), and is operated by two departments, ECE and SE.
