Numerical Methods for Engineers  
ME 352 is a required course for the BSME program, and it is typically taken in the third year. The primary goal is to provide mechanical engineering majors with a basic knowledge of numerical methods including: root-finding, elementary numerical linear algebra, solving systems of linear equations, curve fitting, and numerical solution to ordinary differential equations. MATLAB is the software environment used for implementation and application of these numerical methods. The numerical techniques learned in this course enable students to work with mathematical models of technology and systems.

Automotive Research Lab at Penn State Gives Students Practical Hardware-in-the-Loop Experience  
Description: In a graduate-level course at Penn State, engineering students use MathWorks tools to facilitate the study of electric, hybrid-electric, and fuel cell vehicle technology using hardware-in-the loop (HIL) methodologies. The MathWorks tools allowed the students to do modeling, analysis, and controller design using a single software tool. Students used MATLAB and Simulink to analyze, explore, and visualize systems.
