New Campus-Wide License underscores the university’s commitment to bettering its learning environment.
The University of Balamand has signed an agreement with MathWorks that provides all students, educators, and researchers with access to MATLAB, Simulink, and additional products on and off-campus, on any device. Everyone has access to MathWorks learning resources, including self-paced, online training, to quickly develop their MATLAB and Simulink skills. The University of Balamand joins more than 1500 universities worldwide already using the Campus-Wide License.
The university’s adoption of MATLAB and Simulink for technical computing and Model-Based Design further demonstrates its commitment to continuously enhancing the learning environment for students, educators, and researchers by providing anywhere access to cohesive, industry-standard tools.
The UOB Campus-Wide License includes analysis, design, modeling, simulation, code generation, and testing products that can be used in different disciplines in engineering, sciences, and business. UOB is deploying these tools via a centralized license that increases the administrative efficiency of software management and distribution and ensures that a common set of tools is readily available for all students, educators, and researchers.
Through the agreement between University of Balamand and MathWorks, users will have access to software and associated documentation as well as immediate access to new releases. The Campus-Wide License permits the installation of MATLAB and Simulink on campus-managed and user-owned computers.
Chairperson of the Electrical Engineering Department, Dr. Mohamad Khaldi emphasized that MATLAB is becoming an industry-standard in modeling, analyzing, and simulating systems in Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Mechanical and among other disciplines in Engineering. Furthermore, he assured that MATLAB also goes beyond Mathematics and Engineering to cover Life and Physical Sciences, Statistics, Finance, Machine and Deep Learning, to name a few. Simulink, on the other hand, is a block diagram environment for multidomain simulation and Model-Based Design. Dr. Khaldi believes that the acquired MATLAB Campus-Wide License gives UOB students, faculty, and staff access to Matlab, Simulink, and all their toolboxes that will be helpful in research and in F2F or online teaching.
In turn, Vice President for Internationalization and Engagement and Dean of the Faculty of Engineering Professor Rami Abboud underlined the importance of making use of such tools to empower multidisciplinary research and to augment teaching at the university. He said: “In the tough times we are going through, our ingenuity will distinguish us. That is why it is our job to equip our students and researchers with the best tools to innovate and excel.”
