Numerical Computation and Visualization with SCILAB


SCILAB is an open source scientific software package for numerical computations providing a powerful open computing environment for engineering and scientific applications that similar to the commercial product MATLAB. This workshop provides a preliminary approach on the key features and capabilities of SCILAB to participants so that they can use SCILAB as the ultimate technical computing tool for their teaching and research. This is a 2 full days foundation course to provide participants with a platform to learn Scilab quickly and successfully. Therefore, the participants are equipped with the knowledge of Scilab to address and solve real engineering & science issues, similar to the commercial software MATLAB.


Researchers, Lecturers, Scientists, Engineers and Managers that are not familiar but yet interested in using SCILAB for their teaching and R&D work. This hands-on workshop with case studies is designed mainly for beginners and users who are interested in learning a technical computing software that is similar to of MATLAB®. We encourage participants to bring own computer/laptop for own use. Course Outline and Registration Form : brochure Numerical Scilab
