This workshop will show aspects of Wolfram's technology stack to aid and enhance undergraduate engineering courses. To give input on specific topics you would like to hear about at this presentation, please submit the brief Mathematica Presentation Input form. Topics already on the agenda include:

  • 5 easy ways to get started with Mathematica in the first 5 minutes of use.
  • Viewing and modifying ready-to-use classroom applications
  • Creating interactive slideshows that include nicely-formatted text and live calculations.
  • Programming basics, as well as data analysis, parallel computing, and model-creation and simulation. 
  • Wolfram|Alpha technology for new calculations as well as inclusion within current computations

We will also cover engineering-specific features in Mathematica functionality, including functionality in machine learning, C code generation, control systems, and more.

Cloud-based applications and the portability between the desktop and Mathematica Online will be a feature.  Creating interactive models for viewing within the cloud (and from mobile devices) will be shown.

The content is suitable for faculty, students, and researchers in any field in engineering.  Each attendee will receive an electronic copy of the examples to use as a guide for projects or course examples.  The presentation portion is approximately one hour long with 30 minutes of Q & A following.  No prior knowledge of Mathematica is required.  Both sessions will present the same information so you need to register for only one.
