MATLAB and Simulink Seminars

Teaching Mechanics with MATLAB


Be part of one of the largest educational conversations of 2021! Join MathWorks for our global event series regarding the future of teaching. Our engineers will entertain you with an open discussion regarding common challenges in teaching mechanics in foundational university courses and show you how to address them. They will present classroom-ready resources that can be immediately deployed in your course.


In this session, you will learn about approaches and resources to:

  • Convey the role of mechanics in engineering and science;
  • Introduce students to kinematic, dynamic and vibration analysis;
  • Build models out of mechanical components;
  • Familiarize students with system-level mechanical modelling and design;
  • Practice theory with virtual lab exercises.

Who Should Attend

Teaching staff and students interested in teaching mechanics in a university course.


After the webinar, all registered participants will receive jump starter packages containing the resources presented during the session. These include the slides, examples, and additional educational resources. We encourage you to try these examples. The following week we will hold a feedback session where we will cover additional technical demonstrations and answer any questions you might have.

By registering for the webinar, we will automatically reserve a place for you at the office hour session on August 4 at 1:00 PM CEST/4:30 PM IST.
