The Central University of Technology’s investment in MATLAB was initiated by engineering research projects but grew to support the Engineering Faculty’s teaching and learning environment.

“The involvement with MATLAB was initiated via a number of research projects. Within the projects it was clear that MATLAB was recognised among fellow research groups and thus outputs produced with MATLAB were accepted for publications in journals and conference presentations.”

Due to improved research output, MATLAB was a natural tool of choice and so then was the decision to implement a Campus-Wide license. The use of MATLAB has since been incorporated during a re-curriculation process to ensure that all students encounter and engage MATLAB during their entire university career.

“MATLAB provides a good framework for simulation, optimisation and many other tools in various focus fields. This broad application and its research benefits, all provided the motivation to invest in MATLAB’s academic site license.”
