The MathWorks has just released two new versions of its software: MATLAB 7 and Simulink 6. Intended for technical computing, MATLAB 7 features built-in support for integer and single-precision floating-point math. It also includes MATLAB Compiler, which helps developers run more MATLAB applications independently of MATLAB itself. Simulink 6 provides model-based design for large-model applications and several design teams. Made to improve the design, implementation, and verification processes, the software may eliminate manual coding errors and offer faster development cycle times.

The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
