MathWorks partners with IEEE Guwahati Subsection to embrace AI in Engineering

MathWorks in collaboration with IEEE Guwahati Subsection, concluded a day-long seminar titled “Embracing AI in Engineering: Industry, Academia, and Upskilling for Success” in Guwahati. The seminar underscored the significance of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a burgeoning trend within the industry-academic-research ecosystem.

In the Indian education system, MATLAB® and its toolboxes are a pivotal tool for teaching and research in the fields of engineering, science, and technology. It is deeply integrated into the curriculum of undergraduate and graduate programs in various departments. Collaborations between educational institutions and MathWorks, along with government initiatives, further reinforce MATLAB’s presence, providing students and faculty with access to advanced toolboxes and training for AI applications. 

During the seminar, various technical experts and academicians shared insights into crucial technological advancements and AI applications in engineering. Additionally, MathWorks experts elaborated on how tools such as MATLAB and Simulink® are propelling AI innovation in industries and preparing the next generation workforce for the evolving landscape of today’s technology.

Dr. Lakshminarayan Viju Ravichandran, Engineering Technical Manager, Education, MathWorks India of MathWorks said, “We at MathWorks are thrilled to contribute to the dynamic landscape of AI in engineering. The seminar in collaboration with IEEE Guwahati Subsection was a testament to the power of knowledge exchange and collaboration between industry and academia. As we navigate the evolving technological terrain, MathWorks remains committed to empowering the next generation workforce, fostering innovation, and bridging the gap between theory and practical applications in Artificial Intelligence. Together, we are shaping a future where AI not only meets industry standards but also propels engineering excellence.”

These seminars have provided a valuable platform for engaging with engineering faculty members, fostering meaningful interactions and discussions. The seminar featured compelling discussions on topics like Hardware Connectivity and IoT with MATLAB and Simulink, AI in Engineering Applications – Masterclass, and AI in Engineering and Science Curriculum.

Dr. Chandam Kumar, Chairman of IEEE said “As stewards of technological progress, IEEE Guwahati Subsection is proud to champion initiatives that bridge the gap between academia and industry, particularly in emerging fields like Artificial Intelligence. Our recent collaboration with MathWorks on the seminar in Guwahati underscores our commitment to fostering knowledge exchange and equipping professionals with the tools and insights needed to thrive in today’s rapidly evolving engineering landscape.
