Utilizing Matlab for Teaching Applied Calculus for Engineering Technology

We are creating a new course called Applied Mathematics for Engineering Technology. The students have completed a first calculus course where they previously stopped. We are trying to extend their capabilities in integration, derivatives, and even applications of differential equations necessary for understanding RLC circuits and PID controls by using numerical methods (with software like Matlab). There will be little emphasis on mathematical rigor due to the audience.
Has anyone else created a course of this type? If yes, what text are you using. Please share any information you have. Thank you.
