I have a BSc(Eng) Mechatronics. Currently working as a simulator design engineer for a nuclear power plant simulator. We don't use MATLAB at work but I've used it at University (2004) and want to improve my skills (via community problem solving) with an end goal to move into a career/job that uses MATLAB.
