MATLAB HANDS-ON SHORT COURSE SET FEB. 20-22 AT SPACE INSTITUTE

Dr. Kenneth Kimble of Manchester, associate professor of Mathematics at The University of Tennessee Space Institute, will conduct a “MATLAB Hands On” short course at UTSI Feb. 20-22.

The goal is to “familiarize engineers and scientists with the benefits and capabilities of MATLAB sufficient to enable them to use fairly sophisticated mathematics with minimal skill development,” Kimble said, “and to be able to fully verify and communicate their results in minimal time.”

Three days of two sessions each are planned with open labs provided with the instructor present as the schedule permits.

Fee for the course is $599. Registration may be accomplished by contacting Becky Stines, director of Continuing Education, MS 15, The University of Tennessee Space Institute, B.H. Goethert Parkway,Tullahoma, 37388-8897. She may be reached at (931) 393-7276 or toll free at 888 822-8874, Ext. 276.

Kimble has taught MATLAB, which he uses extensively in his research, in short courses and academic courses for several years. He is currently involved in the construction for the U.S. Air Force of an “Engine Analysis Testbench,” which uses MATLAB for both algorithm and GUI production.
