“The kind of perspective that Opti-Num gives us is immense, given that we are in academia we risk becoming too restricted by the person who wrote the text book in a sense of not being able to completely cover what is being said and making it relevant to South African market.”
The Central University of Technology (CUT) provides tertiary education and training in science, engineering and technology. CUT is one of five South African universities with a MATLAB Campus-Wide License. The license provides all lecturers, students and researchers with access to 90+ MATLAB tools on personal computers, mobile phones and lab computers.
“A current problem that we have is that we push out graduates and they oftentimes have no idea what is going on in Industry. In my opinion, I think that to work without MATLAB, especially in Engineering is to search for something in complete darkness, like looking for a coin or pin in complete darkness.”
With the Campus-Wide License and a partnership with Opti-Num Solutions, Mr Kuriokose has formulated a new curriculum primarily focussing on industry relevant engineering topics while incorporating Project- Based Learning.
“I am passionate about education and I want to see how I can make it the best for my students and that takes effort. The curriculum we develop is not set it stone, after 6 months you can find that something no longer works, it needs to constantly develop as it is undergoing a constant metamorphism and that’s where Opti-Num comes in."
- Mr Rangith Kuriakose, Electrical Engineering Lecturer
“Using Instrument Control Toolbox and a MATLAB GUI allows for our test engineers to focus on the accurate and repeatable measurement of the Systems Under Test, and not on the complexity in manually controlling the instruments to generate measured results."
"By using Simulink in combination with the MATLAB Compiler SDK we were able to develop a robust and user-friendly plugin framework in 3 months with a team of 2 developers."
“At Alaris we intentionally favour candidates for engineering positions that can claim a solid background in MATLAB."

“I strongly encourage the use of MATLAB and Simulink, particularly when it comes to control systems design, system modelling, analysis and deployment."
Impacting the lives of students through the Campus-Wide License.
“Before MATLAB Onramp, many of my students struggled to work out how to use MATLAB to draw a function and had to be shown how to set up a script, how the command windows works, etc."
“MATLAB allows us to implement and test algorithms effortlessly and it is easy to debug.”
“The Opti-Num team delivered top-class work under tight deadlines and nation-wide lockdown – they exceeded all my expectations."
“The software development expertise of Opti-Num Solutions and the outstanding flexibility of their developers, given ever changing requirements, ensured the successful extension of our OPM toolset."
“I highly recommend Opti-Num Solutions as the number one consulting company within the analytics, modelling and simulation environments”.
“Opti-Num Solutions assisted Nedbank with automating the process of gathering publically accessible data, preparing that data and translating it into usable Excel spreadsheets which the wider Nedbank Group can utilise."
