Teaching with MATLAB by Mr. Stefano Olivieri
Date : 11 May, 2018 (Friday)
Time : 4:00 - 5:00 pm
Venue : iDendron, 1/F., Knowles Building, HKU
Speaker : Mr. Stefano Olivieri, Customer Success Engineer, Mathworks
One of the main goals of engineering and scientific education is to teach students how to deal with real-world problems. When developing their curricula, professors need to determine the right balance between interesting and challenging topics so that students are encouraged to put into practice the theoretical concepts they have already learned.
The expectation from the industry is another key factor influencing the teaching. Nowadays, young scientists and engineers need to be ready and proficient to proactively contribute to the modelling, design, and implementation processes.
During this presentation, we will give a general overview of the main capabilities available in MATLAB to inspire critical thinking and innovation as well as to prepare students for prominent careers in industry, where the tools are the de facto standard for R&D. Through practical examples, we will also describe how top universities worldwide are successfully integrating MATLAB into their curricula to make teaching more engaging and trigger interdisciplinary learning.
