FCU’s 2012 MATLAB Day and programming competition took place on May 3. More than 90 faculty members and students participated showing the increasing familiarity with the MATLAB software on campus.
MATLAB Day has already entered its fourth year. Each year, this day is focused around different themes and activities. This year, the focus was on the fields of mechatronics and statistics to allow faculty and students to understand MATLAB’s functionality and convenience in a diversity of professional applications. Students were encouraged to enter a programming competition and the top winners earned scholarships provided by TeraSoft Inc.
MATLAB & SIMULINK are the world’s most widely used high tech calculation software tools. These software tools are easy to use and have applications in a broad range of engineering and R&D fields. Obtaining MATLAB & SIMULINK skills will allow students hoping to enter high tech fields to be more competitive.
