Simulink Fundamentals

Self-paced, interactive course available as part of Online Training Suite subscription or for individual purchase


Simulink® Fundamentals is a self-paced, interactive course that is included with the Online Training Suite. If you do not have access to the Online Training Suite, you can purchase access to the course.

Simulink Fundamentals will teach you to:

  • Use the Simulink environment.

  • Model continuous and discrete dynamic systems.

  • Organize growing models in subsystems that create visual and functional hierarchy.

  • Componentize models by referencing other models and creating libraries.

  • Optimize simulation performance.

Simulink Fundamentals uses tasks to teach concepts incrementally, such as through a real-life example with a 3D printer. 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.


Simulink Fundamentals build upon concepts covered in Simulink Onramp. To get the most out of Simulink Fundamentals, take Simulink Onramp first.

Simulink Onramp is a self-paced, interactive tutorial that offers a quick and high-level introduction to Simulink. It is free and no subscription is required.

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

Open the Simulink Fundamentals

  • On the Simulink Start Page, on the Learn tab, click the button that appears when you pause on any of the items in the Simulink Fundamentals group.

  • In the MATLAB® Command Window, enter learning.simulink.launchOnramp('slbe').

If you do not have access to the Simulink Fundamentals course, you can explore access options at Self-Paced Online Courses.
