Dr Mariette Hitge from North-West University uses MATLAB Onramp to save time grading assignments and to help students learn about MATLAB independently.
“Prof. Gordon Cooper at the Wits School of Geosciences uses MATLAB as an introduction to computational physics as he believes it is a great platform for getting the fundamental skills across to them with a tool that can deeply support their studies.” – Prof. Gordon Cooper , University of Witwatersrand
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.
Dr Michelle Erasmus is a lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at Central University of Technology. She has redesigned the Engineering Mathematics curriculum with the support of the Campus-Wide License and Opti-Num Solutions. – ” Of all the superpowers in the Maths Department, MATLAB is our favourite.”
Mr Rangith Kuriakose, Electrical Engineering lecturer, has partnered with Opti-Num Solutions to build and supplement his Electrical Engineering curriculum to incorporate industry standards while adhering to the standards set by ECSA (Engineering Council of South Africa).
Dr Janse van Rensburg from North-West University created online assignments using MATLAB Grader for her Linear Systems course. The purpose of this was to quickly and efficiently measure whether students understood the theory for designing a passive filter, before moving into the lab to build a physical passive filter. These assignments enabled a more efficient workflow as the lecturer could track her students’ understanding and application of theory.
Dr Karel Kruger, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering Lecturer at Stellenbosch University uses virtual practicals to enhance the practical perspective in undergraduate control systems teaching.
