Amrita MATLAB user forum

The MATLAB user forum, Amrita College of Engineering and Technology, Nagercoil is a student run club in the campus which has 46 students and 10 teachers as active participants.

MATLAB stands for Matrix Laboratory. It is a high-performance language that is used for technical computing. It is a programming environment for algorithm development, data analysis, visualization, and numeric computation.

MATLAB and its tools are used for applications development in the fields of Statistics and Machine Learning (ML), Control Systems (CS), Signal Processing (SP), Deep Learning (DL), Financial Analysis (FA), Image Processing (IP), in Circuit Simulation, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics, Image Processing, Wireless Communication (WC), Data Analytics (DA), etc.

Members of the Amrita MATLAB user forum teach MATLAB to the First Year BE students about matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs written in other languages, including C, C++, C#, Java, Fortran and Python.

Higher semester students are trained to use MATLAB and Simulink to develop smaller, more efficient devices that integrate audio, video, wireless communications, and other features. Members of the forum offer One-Day Projects with MATLAB using MATLAB and its tools to explore and validate algorithms and system-level designs as part of the one-day learn and make project option.

Objectives of the Forum

  • To create a core team of students and staff experts in MATLAB to prepare students to learn and solve engineering/mathematical problems in relevance to current industry requirements.
  • To provide an opportunity for the students to supplement their education with hands on experience in MATLAB for taking up inter-disciplinary projects.
  • To engage our students with active participation in various workshops, contests, and tutorial in MATLAB to enable them to implement their innovative ideas using MATLAB.
  • To enhance mathematical computing skill of our students and staff using MATLAB in developing software and hardware related projects.
