System Dynamics and Controls

This course provides a great introduction to controls and mathematical modeling of mechanical systems. What does that mean? Well, you will learn how to generate equations that can be used to model a body’s motion. Think of a pendulum swinging – after this course you will be able to model this type of motion using differential equations and matrices. ENROLL NOW.


MATLAB for Engineering Students Part 1

MATLAB is a widely-used software program that is found in many industries ranging from engineering to finance. Users love it because it’s easy to use and produces high quality graphics. All you have to do to get started is learn to code in MATLAB. This course will teach you just that! We will start from the very beginning by introducing the desktop environment and work our way up to more complex topics like nested for loops. ENROLL NOW.

Electronics – for Complete Beginners

A brilliant course for mechanical engineers seeking a career in the electronics or telecoms industries. Such companies look for engineers with at least the basic understanding of analogue and digital electronics. This course focuses on the practical aspects of electronics, rather than going into complex theoretical data. The teaching style is very personal – one-to-one and consists of short video presentations. ENROLL NOW.
