MathWorks has revealed that Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT) in Karnataka, India has implemented a campus-wide license for the MATLAB and Simulink. According to the institute, this will allow students to gain hands-on, practical experience with software used widely in industry, and the faculty engage in research and develop curriculum based on their experiences with the tools.

MIT has been using MATLAB and Simulink in its B. Tech and M. Tech courses since 2003 and has integrated the software into its curriculum. With the new campus-wide implementation, more than 2000 undergraduate and post-graduate students, and over 500 faculty members will be able to learn, teach and research with MATLAB and Simulink in MIT's labs, classrooms, and on laptops and PCs off-campus. The implementation will cover wide-ranging disciplines such as engineering, biological and life sciences, mathematics, physical sciences, and business and economics.

"Manipal Institute of Technology aims to train world-class engineers tuned to the demands of a fast-changing global economy. The campus-wide implementation of MATLAB and Simulink is a major stride toward arming our students with the relevant engineering knowledge and the skills to ably compete with the best in the global job market," stated Vinod Thomas, associate director (development), MIT. "The campus-wide license also ensures access to world-class research infrastructure for our faculty members."

"Engineering education needs to be in sync with the requirements of the industry. Globally, MathWorks has a strong focus on bridging the gap between the academia and industry sectors. By providing easy and campus-wide access to industry-standard software such as MATLAB and Simulink, MIT is equipping its students with a blend of theory and real-world technology practices, making them industry-ready," noted Kishore Rao, managing director of MathWorks India.
