MATLAB and Simulink are tools developed by MathWorks which are used by engineers and scientists to analyze data for homework, visualize complex problems, model systems, and develop the computational skills that prepare you for your future career from engineering to science, from biology to artificial intelligence, and more.

Are your interests related to top-ranked innovation topics as autonomous driving, space exploration, climate change investigation, battle against Covid-19, ethology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, robotics and many others? MATLAB and Simulink are industrial standards in many companies worldwide you will work with sooner or later in your career.

The University of Cape Town has access to the latest releases of MATLAB, Simulink and all toolboxes developed by MathWorks for specific science-based fields.

In this seminar, MATLAB and Simulink will be presented starting from a zero-knowledge level. Then, videos, online tutorials, documentations, and cheat sheets will be presented with the aim of enhancing your skills. This material is a useful repository of information that you can use now, in future and every time you will need to refresh such concepts.

MathWorks tools have been, are, and will be used in different courses and projects during your academic path. This seminar is a unique opportunity to learn or review concepts which will be central in your future career. Looking forward to seeing you there.
