School of Applied Computing Visit MATLAB EXPO 2015


Representatives from Swansea’s School of Applied Computing (Arya, Carlene and Archie) recently visited the MATLAB EXPO in Silverstone.

School of Applied Computing Matlab Visist

MATLAB (matrix laboratory) is a multi-paradigm numerical computing environment and fourth-generation programming language that allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces and is primarily used for numerical computing.

Lecturer Dr Carlene Campbell finds the Simulink element of MathWorks-MATLAB useful in teaching Computer Networks & Internet Security:

"I did enjoy the expo, especially the first speaker. The demonstration room allowed you to gain ideas for research projects and more." - Carlene

While PhD student tutors Archie and Arya both use Matlab for their research:

"I found the event very informative and rewarding, especially considering it was free to attend. The keynote was particularly good as it showed how Matlab is used across a diverse range of industries and the types of system it’s been involved with the development of, perhaps most notably the New Horizons Flight Software. The technical talks and demonstrations were also great; they also weren’t too long so it was easy to stay focused. Several sessions will be beneficial to my research and I’d strongly recommend the event to anyone in the Faculty." – Archie.

"The event was spectacular. I found most of the presentations relevant and useful. The demonstrations were great. In particular, one of the exhibitions was so helpful that I might be adapting a similar approach in my PhD experiment." – Arya
