Three Days Workshop on Fundamentals of MATLAB was conducted in association with Mathworks Ltd. by the Computer Centre, PEC University of Technology, Chandigarh. MATLAB is used worldwide to analyse and design systems and products. It is optimized for solving engineering and scientific problems. MATLAB is used in a wide spectrum of applications which include automobile active safety systems, interplanetary spacecraft, health monitoring devices, smart power grids, and LTE cellular networks. It is also used for many academic research areas such as machine learning, signal processing, image processing, computer vision, communications, computational finance, control design and robotics.
The Programme was inaugurated by Prof. Sanjeev Sofat, Deputy Director followed by a Welcome Speech by the Coordinator of the programme, Sh. Sanjay Batish, Head, Computer Centre, PEC University of Technology who explained how MATLAB has become an integral and accepted part of academics and how the software is increasing in importance day by day. Ms. Elza John, Training Engineer at MathWorks India Private Limited then delivered the introductory speech on the importance of the course.
The 3 day workshop from 13th to 15th July, 2016 attended by various Faculty Members of PEC University of Technology comprised demonstration and explanation of various options and techniques offered by MATLAB. The workshop included the most comprehensive selection of methods and techniques for the participants to solve complex problems. During the hands on session the participants used MATLAB in the Computer Centre and experienced how it is optimized for solving engineering and scientific problems.
The workshop concluded with a Valedictory Session where Prof. Arun K Lall and Prof. Sucheta shared their experience during the workshop and thanked the Speaker for her efforts. They also explained how such a course is useful for faculty as well as research scholars. A vote of thanks was proposed by Prof. Rajesh Bhatia, Head, Computer Science and Engineering Department and he thanked the speaker, the participants and the organizing team of the Computer Centre.
