Matlab is a package for scientific and engineering computation
that is heavily used in teaching (both formal and informal) and research.
- Document preparation - predominantly LaTeX.
- Program development - amongst the
languages available are C, C++, Fortran, Fortran90, Lisp, Pascal,
Prolog and Java.
- CAD - Mentor Graphics (Electrical), DUCT (Surface- and duct- like
shape modeller), ME10 (2D design and drafting package), Pro/ENGINEER
- Finite-element analysis - ABAQUS, P3/FEA, MSC/PATRAN, FEMGV, SLIM, mesh/fep.
We run the newest versions of the above software, bringing in new programmes
wherever appropriate. We also maintain a wide range of freely available
software and utilities.
As well as providing a platform for course-related software,
the Teaching System is used heavily by the
research community outside term time, so many research-orientated
programs are installed too. The system has been designed so that research
systems are easily accessible (in particular for 4th year students).
This all means that the undergraduates have
the option of using the same tools as researchers.
