Objectives of the Training Program

This training program aims at providing a forum for faculty, to empower themselves with a powerful tool for problem solving in various fields of Engineering. The training program is designed to motivate faculty to pursue their research work in relevant fields.

Course Objectives

Today’s problems require today’s tools. MATLAB has emerged as a most powerful industry standard tool for modeling, simulation, analysis and design of various types of engineering applications. The effective usage of MATLAB necessitates preliminary awareness in programming. SIMULINK provides an interactive graphical environment and a customizable set of block libraries that let you design, simulate, implement, and test a variety of time-varying systems.

The training program will address the following topics: 1. Hands-on experience using the features in the MATLAB® language to write an efficient, robust, and well-organized code. 2. Building models as block diagrams, simulation of its dynamic behaviour and analysis in either environment at any point.
