1Introduction to MATLAB

You will be introduced to MATLAB and you will be taught the basics of MATLAB by using a top-down approach. That is, you will start directly by solving problems and stop in the required places to learn about the fundamentals of programming.

  • You will learn the MATLAB syntax and the various commands used in it.
  • You will understand the methods and the ways to use the commands in different scenarios.
  • You will learn to manipulate your own calculations and comparisons
  • You will learn about the use of arrays.
  • You will learn about the Functions used along with plotting, creating movies, creating figures etc

2Forward Kinematics Simulator

In this module, you will write programs to simulate a 2R Robotic Arm Manipulator
  • You will animate the manipulator motion using ImageMagick.
  • Here you will learn about the simulation part
  • And you will learn how to create a movie clip along with the spatial motions of Robotic arm
  • You will learn how the FOR loop plays a role in the programming
  • And how the “hold on” command works
  • And about the arrays and linspace commands

3Air Standard Cycle Simulator

In this module, you will write code to simulate an Air Standard Cycle.

  • Your code will solve the piston kinematics equation to calculate the volume trace.
  • Your code will create PV diagrams for different operating conditions.
  • You will learn how to work on various thermodynamic relationships
  • You will learn about the pressure-volume variations.
  • And you will learn how the order of the program is significant
  • Functions can be cleared through this challenge
  • You will also learn about the plots, legends used in the graphs
  • Finally, you will learn about the piston kinematics

4Vibrations and Dynamics

Most mechanical engineering devices are dynamic in nature. Understanding the effect of forces on the product motion is of utmost importance. The equation of motions for these systems forms a set of Ordinary Differential Equations.
  • Implement BDF and FDF methods to solve ODEs
  • Learn about the real use of differential equations
  • How the differential equations connect to the real-world applications and how to solve those differential equations
  • You will learn about the ODE solvers, and also about the syntax of ODE’s, and also about various supplementary commands

5Curve Fitting and Regression

  • An engineer needs to understand the dependence between system input and output. Curve-fits are a great tool to do this. In this module, you will learn how to perform curve fits with MATLAB.
  • Curve fits and regression are the part of Machine learning and Neural Networks
  • Curve fitting helps you to make a comparison study with the original ideal data set with the experimental one 
  • And you will learn about the polynomials and their best fits
  • You will learn about the PolyFit and PolyVal commands
  • You will know how to calculate the errors
  • You will learn about SSR, SSE, SST

6Genetic Algorithm

  • Genetic Algorithm is a procedure to optimize multi-parameter systems. It is used to optimize different types of systems and processes
  • You will learn about the optimization techniques used in industries
  • Genetic Algorithm is one of the optimization techniques used widely and you will learn how GA works
  • You can easily optimize their values using the Genetic Algorithm
  • You will know about the GA syntax and how to get the global maxima 
  • You will also learn about the options, they can include apart from the default one and also about the stalagmite functions and how it works
  • And also about the population size, number of generations, fitness value, and termination of further generations

Projects Overview

File Parsing


  • You will write a code to read NASA-II polynomial file and calculate thermodynamic parameters
  • You will know how to write and read a file
  • And you will learn about the parsing techniques
  • You will know how to use an external file to use inside the MATLAB for manipulations
  • You will learn the commands, load, write, read and fgetl(to get the lines)
  • And commands like strcomp and strsplit, this is for string manipulations
  • You will also learn about the loops and conditions

Cycle Simulator


  • This project will define the entire Rankine cycle calculations which can be done by using the Steam tables
  • So this project will cover all the topics learnt before and also helpful in calculations
  • In this project, the state points are found and the parameters are taken by loading the steam table
