Simscape Onramp

Free, self-paced, interactive Simscape course

Since R2021a


Simscape™ Onramp is a free, self-paced, interactive course that helps you get started with Simscape.

Simscape Onramp teaches you to:

  • Use Simscape models, including models of an resistor-capacitor (RC) circuit and rotational mass damper.

  • Examine simulation results for physical quantities using sensor blocks.

  • Model physical systems with external inputs or initial values.

  • Create interactions between multiple physical domains with examples of electromechanical conversion, fluids, and hydroelectric power.

  • Implement feedback control with Simscape and Simulink®

Simscape Onramp uses tasks to teach concepts incrementally, such as through a real-life example with an electronic valve. You receive automated assessments and feedback after submitting tasks. Your progress is saved when you exit the course, so you can complete the course in multiple sessions.

Simscape Onramp describes the task, displays an interactive model, and assesses whether the model matches the requirements set by the training.

Open the Simscape Onramp

  • Simulink Start Page: On the Learn tab, click the Launch button that appears when you pause on Simscape Onramp.

  • MATLAB® Command Window: Enter learning.simulink.launchOnramp("simscape").


If you do not have a Simscape license, you can take the course at Self-Paced Online Courses.
