Educators teach mechanical engineering courses with MATLAB and Simulink by drawing on available course materials, onramp tutorials, and code examples. Educators can use MATLAB live scripts to create lectures that combine explanatory text, mathematical equations, code, and results. Examples are presented to demonstrate the application of MATLAB and Simulink to the analysis of problems in system dynamics, engineering mechanics, mathematical modeling, and Model-Based Design.

Below is a sample of course curricula, textbooks, educational videos, online labs, and additional tools for teaching mechanical engineering courses with MATLAB and Simulink.
