Wichita State University’s badge program makes workforce training and continuing education accessible and affordable. Each badge is designed with the practicing professional in mind so coursework can be completed online and at your own pace.
A badge is worth 0.5 credit hours and equates to about 22.5 hours of combined online instruction and study time. This makes workloads more manageable for someone who is already busy with a full-time job and family!
The Aerospace Engineering department offers a variety of badges. Be sure to visit this site and the WSU Workforce Education and Badge Programs site regularly for new and updated offerings.

WSU’s NEW online Advanced MatLab Badge course provides an understanding of Matlab tools for the simulation of dynamic systems, design of controllers and optimization of goals subject to constraints. Specific topics that will be covered include the Matlab tools for the following: ordinary differential equation, two-point boundary value problem, constrained non-linear optimization, curve-fitting, controllability and observability of linear systems, classical control techniques, linear quadratic regulator, simulink modeling, animation and file-based input-output. The course will provide an initial review of Matlab programming basics.
The Advanced MatLab Badge course is designed for people who want to solve engineering problems using MatLab, specifically related to control, optimization and simulation of dynamic systems.
