Session Abstract

Students play an important role in the adoption of new technology. Software, such as MATLAB and Simulink, helps students apply concepts to industrial and societal real world problems. MathWorks supports you and your students through multiple programs. In this panel discussion, we will explain the programs we offer, how they can help you, and how they help students develop into engineers. We will provide an overview of the programs and have an expert panel answer questions and share their experiences building and working with our programs.
