Summer Position in Washington DC - Conversion of Database Assisted Design (DAD) Code to C++


I am seeking a student for the summer (May-August) to begin working on the conversion of an existing MATLAB-based code for the Database Assisted Design (DAD) of tall steel buildings under wind loads to C++. Obviously, the only prerequisite is proficiency in both C++ and MATLAB. A background in wind engineering is not needed as you will learn along the way. 

Please note that this is job intended for an undergraduate/graduate student already in or planning to be in the DC area this summer. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to pay travel expenses from far-away places.

The salary will be paid hourly (~40 hours/week) and is negotiable. The project location is Washington, DC. The start date and end date are flexible.  

If interested, please contact me at or at (202) 319-6952.

Hello Prof,

I'm not sure of why you need to convert your given matlab code into C++ but thought of sharing this. One can easily convert a given matlab code into freely available scilab code. Scilab code then can easily be converted to C and then into standalone executables for any front-end, written in Java or VB, to access. So, to convert a given matlab code into executable you don't need to know C or C++.
