MathWorks today said that Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT) has implemented a campus-wide license for the Matlab and Simulink product families. MIT thus has standardized on the same tools used by engineers and scientists across industries for technical computing, simulation and model-based design.
MIT has been using Matlab and Simulink in its B. Tech and M. Tech courses from 2003 and has aloready integrated the software into its curriculum. With the new campus-wide implementation, more than 2,000 undergraduate and post-graduate students and over 500 faculty members will be able to learn, teach and research with Matlab and Simulink in MIT’s labs, classrooms, and on laptops and PCs off-campus.
Matlab is a programming environment for algorithm development, data analysis, visualization and numeric computation while Simulink is a graphical environment for simulation and model-based design of multi-domain
dynamic and embedded systems.
The implementation at MIT covers engineering, biological and life sciences, mathematics, physical sciences, business and economics.
“The campus-wide implementation of MATLAB and Simulink is a major stride towards arming our students with the relevant engineering knowledge and the skills to ably compete with the best in the global job market. The campus-wide license also ensures access to world-class research infrastructure for our faculty members,” said Vinod Thomas, Associate Director (Development), Manipal Institute of Technology.
“By providing easy and campus-wide access to industry-standard software such as MATLAB and Simulink, MIT is equipping its students with a blend of theory and real-world technology practices, making them industry-ready,” said Kishore Rao, managing director of MathWorks India.
