Implementation Equips Students with Practical Knowledge of Industry Standard Software
BANGALORE, India : MathWorks, the leading developer of mathematical computing software, announced that Manipal Institute of Technology in Karnataka, India has implemented a campus-wide license for the MATLAB and Simulink product families. With this implementation, Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT) has standardized on the same tools used by engineers and scientists across industries for technical computing, simulation and Model-Based Design. MIT’s students will gain hands-on, practical experience with software used widely in industry, and MIT’s faculty can engage is research and devise curriculum based on their experiences with these tools.
MIT has been using MATLAB and Simulink in its B. Tech and M. Tech courses since 2003 and has integrated the software into its curriculum. With the new campus-wide implementation, more than 2000 undergraduate and post-graduate students, and over 500 faculty members will be able to learn, teach and research with MATLAB and Simulink in MIT’s labs, classrooms, and on laptops and PCs off-campus. The implementation will cover wide-ranging disciplines such as Engineering, Biological and Life Sciences, Mathematics, Physical Sciences, and Business and Economics.
“Manipal Institute of Technology aims to train world-class engineers tuned to the demands of a fast-changing global economy. The campus-wide implementation of MATLAB and Simulink is a major stride towards arming our students with the relevant engineering knowledge and the skills to ably compete with the best in the global job market,” said Dr. Vinod Thomas, Associate Director (Development), Manipal Institute of Technology. “The campus-wide license also ensures access to world-class research infrastructure for our faculty members.”
“Engineering education needs to be in sync with the requirements of the industry. Globally, MathWorks has a strong focus on bridging the gap between the academia and industry sectors. By providing easy and campus-wide access to industry-standard software such as MATLAB and Simulink, MIT is equipping its students with a blend of theory and real-world technology practices, making them industry-ready,” said Kishore Rao, managing director of MathWorks India.
About MathWorks Campus-Wide License
A MathWorks campus-wide license, also called the Total Academic Headcount (TAH) License, provides all students and professors of the academic institution or university, ready access to the latest versions of MathWorks software. In addition to the core products of MATLAB and Simulink, institutions can choose products that cover a variety of application areas, including image processing, control systems, statistics, finance, signal processing, mathematics, instrument control and data acquisition, and computational biology. The campus-wide license can be administered centrally and reduces administrative and technical costs of managing licenses within academic departments.
MathWorks products are fundamental teaching and research tools used by the world's leading universities and learning institutions. Over 5000 universities worldwide use MATLAB and more than 1 million students and faculty have campus-wide access to MathWorks tools through TAH licenses. MathWorks also supports student competitions that provide students with practical experience overcoming complex engineering challenges. For more information about MathWorks in academia, visit  
About Manipal Institute of Technology
Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT), constituent of Manipal University, one of the premier engineering institutes in India, is among the first self-financed engineering colleges in the country. Started in 1957, as Manipal Engineering College, primarily with an under-graduate course in Civil Engineering, MIT currently offers graduate programs (B.E / B.Arch) in 16 disciplines and postgraduate courses (M.Tech / M.Arch / MCA) in 22 different streams and Doctoral (Ph.D) programs in all streams of engineering. With total student strength of over 6500, MIT has since emerged as the largest institute of the University. MIT is ISO 9001: 2000 certified by TUV and has been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA). For more information about MIT, please visit
