This presentation demonstrates how engineering and science students can use the MATLAB technical computing environment to develop a deeper understanding of complex multi domain applications. A quadcopter UAV example is used as a case study to connect the fundamental mathematical concepts introduced in the earlier years of a science/engineering degree, to the numerical methods and control design concepts taught in the later years.
Using the quadcopter case study, we’ll demonstrate how the following deeper learning attributes are encouraged:
Some of the learning tasks considered in this presentation include:
