City engineer develops MATLAB based methodologies for simplified understanding of basic sciences


Nagpur: Soumyajit Thakur, electronic engineer hailing from Nagpur has successfully developed MATLAB based methodologies for simplified understanding of basic sciences.

Previously, he has also invented a pioneering new ‘footstep power generation system with solar panel’ that converts both human locomotion energy as well as solar energy into electrical energy.

While serving in various coaching centres of Nagpur meant for JEE/NEET/Boards preparation, he has taken a pioneering new initiative of using the simulation software MATLAB (MATrix LABoratory) for simplified understanding of students, various difficult topics of subjects like Physics (Projectile Motion, Scalars and Vectors, Rotational Motion, Circular Motion, Communication Systems etc.); Mathematics (Determinants, Matrices,

Derivatives, Integration, Definite Integration, Probability etc.) and Electronics (Logic Gates, Half and Full Wave Rectifier Operation etc) have been taught and simulated by him in a lucid manner which has drawn applause from students and academicians alike.

He is also an Mtech pursuing student in the electronics department of Rajiv Gandhi College of Engineering and Research, Wanadongri, Nagpur.

Over the years MATLAB or simulation software has been a part of the course work of engineering students, since 2015 it also got introduced as a practical subject in Polytechnic level, so XI and XII being another widely pursued course at the intermediate level, its introduction will help students and benefit them by leaps and bounds.
