ENGR 131—Fall 2013 Answer Sheet Homework #3 Answer Sheet 2 Name: Dev Pathak Purdue Login: Pathakd Section Number: 002 Problem 2: MATLAB Stories Summary of User Story 1 and explanation of why you chose this story: The first story I read is about the development of innovative aerospace engineering curriculum at the Arizona State University(ASU), using MATLAB tools. The Aerospace department at ASU incorporated MATLAB tools in the curriculum to give students a better methodology to understand the theoretical concepts. Students used MATLAB and Simulink incorporated with Aerospace toolbox and few other softwares, like Aerospace Blockset and SolidWorks to create aircraft designs applying the concepts of aero- dynamics, with variable parameters and then tested their designs by running simulations in FlightGear integrated in the Simulink. This helped students to check the practical applicability of the theoretical concepts. The incorporation of MATLAB in the curriculum led to increase in the confidence of students, better academic results and elimination of lab time conflicts. This user story interests me because I intend to major in Aeronautical Astronautical Engineering, and this story is about how MATLAB was used to enhance aerospace engineering’s curriculum, which I hopefully, will take up after my first year engineering.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
