Meeting Point MATLAB


Since 2007 the RWTH Aachen University disposes over a MATLAB Campus license, which can be utilized individually by all university students and employees. This software, which enables for various mathematical-technical problems to be solved, is employed in numerous industrial applications. For instance, MATLAB is frequently applied for controller design, dynamic systems simulations, for statistical calculations and image processing.


Information on L2P Course Rooms

Registration for the L2P course rooms is usually performed by the students themselves, starting from the lecture site in the campus system. If you have trouble registering or you need a late registration, please contact your respective advisor.


In scope of the course "Meeting Point“ MATLAB, the possibility is offered to all RWTH members to learn MATLAB Software through intensively supervised lectures.
