Northeastern University used MATLAB with instrumentation hardware to teach engineering skills
|24 Nov 2009||MathWorks Classroom Resources Team||
Northeastern University's computer-based discovery lab, which teaches computer programming and engineering concepts to freshmen by providing hands-on experience with test and measurement instrumentation, uses MATLAB as its programming environment. Using MATLAB as the programming language allows professors to introduce programming and engineering concepts in simple, observable, and sequential steps. MATLAB and various MathWorks toolboxes allow students to use a single, efficient software tool to control their instruments and analyze their data.
