Faculty Development Program on “Integrating Computational Thinking into Curriculum with MATLAB & Simulink” on 29 - 30 Jan 2019

Course Overview
Department of ECE Organized a Faculty Development Program on “Integrating Computational Thinking into Curriculum with MATLAB & Simulink” on 29th & 30th January 2019 held at at Shanmuga Rishi-Computer Laboratory, Vinayaka Mission’s Kirupananda Variyar Engineering College, Salem. Resource Person Mr.D.Rajkumar from Design Tech Systems Ltd, Chennai.
Course Objective
The two-day FDP provides a comprehensive introduction to the MATLAB technical computing environment. MATLAB and Simulink are widely used across industries for research and product development, so researchers can apply their research to interesting and challenging real-world examples. MATLAB (MATrix LABoratory) is a multi-paradigm numerical computing environment and proprietary programming language developed by MathWorks. The Faculty Development Program (FDP) aims at deliberation, sharing knowledge to the target audience about the significance of MATLAB Tools and its application and present current research opportunities in this field. Themes of data analysis, visualization, modeling, and programming are explored throughout the FDP. Introduction about the basics of algorithm modeling and design validation in Simulink. It also demonstrates how to apply basic modeling techniques and tools to develop Simulink block diagrams. Topics include:

  • Installation
  • Basics of MATLAB
  • Working with the MATLAB user interface
  • Creating and modifying Simulink models and simulating system dynamics
  • Creating reusable model components using subsystems, libraries, and model references

Course Schedule
Day 1

  • Installation
  • Basics of MATLAB
  • Working with the MATLAB user interface

Day 2

  • Creating and modifying Simulink models and simulating system dynamics
  • Creating reusable model components using subsystems, libraries, and model references

Course Outcome
This program enriched the knowledge and skill level on the usage of MATLAB Tools and its application. The basics of MATLAB and how to work out in simulink model were discussed. The current research opportunities in MATLAB field were also discussed. The program discussion fostered inter-disciplinary collaborative research in MATLAB Tools and its application. Also this program provided an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas on the topics of importance along with thought provoking technical sessions.
