To meet the strong demand for skilled and knowledgeable engineers in the region around Turin, Italy, Politecnico di Torino has introduced Model-Based Software Design, a course for fifth-year students that combines lectures and practical exercises with seminars conducted by local industry experts. Using MATLAB®, Simulink®, Stateflow®, and Embedded Coder™, students learn how to manage the growing complexity of today’s embedded systems by designing and simulating an executable model; rigorously validating, testing, and debugging it; and generating code for an embedded target. By fostering collaboration and knowledge-sharing between academia and industry, the course is helping prepare the students for the engineering challenges they will face in their future jobs.
