Physical Modeling in Academia
MATLAB, Simulink, and Simscape provide a foundation for innovation that will serve your students long after they graduate. This rich set of proven tools is the de facto industry standard for modeling, simulation, and implementation. Graduates with simulation experience from project-based courses are in demand by employers.
Students graduating with MATLAB, Simulink, and Simscape, experience are attractive to companies looking for employees. Working with these products helps students learn the best practices for using simulation to solve design challenges.
When you and your students work in MATLAB, Simulink, and Simscape, you share a common language, which fosters collaboration and interdisciplinary efforts. Teams can use these products to develop subsystems individually and then combine them to test the overall design. Mechanical, electrical, and controls engineering students can test their designs in a single simulation environment. Using Simulink Report Generator, they can automatically document their work and results to share with others.
Model-Based Design places a system model at the center of the development process. Teaching Model-Based Design with MATLAB, Simulink, and Simscape helps your students understand how their designs are affected by the constraints imposed by hardware. For example, their designs can include sensors that have precision and range limitations. With Simulink, they can test their designs on hardware platforms for project-based learning, which helps them transform their designs into actual products.
Knowledge of MATLAB and Simulink on practical applications is a substantial advantage to our students as they work in internships after their second year and in industry after their third year.
