Certification Course on MATLAB Programming

About the Course

This course teaches computer programming to those with little to no previous experience. It uses the programming system and language called MATLAB to do so because it is easy to learn, versatile and very useful for engineers and other professionals. MATLAB is a special-purpose language that is an excellent choice for writing moderate-size programs that solve problems involving the manipulation of numbers. The design of the language makes it possible to write a powerful program in a few lines. The problems may be relatively complex, while the MATLAB programs that solve them are relatively simple: relative that is, to the equivalent program written in a general-purpose language, such as C++ or Java. As a result, MATLAB is being used in a wide variety of domains from the natural sciences, through all disciplines of engineering, to finance, and beyond, and it is heavily used in industry. Hence, a solid background in MATLAB is an indispensable skill in today’s job market.

Nevertheless, this course is not a MATLAB tutorial. It is an introductory programming course that uses MATLAB to illustrate general concepts in computer science and programming. Students who successfully complete this course will become familiar with general concepts in computer science, gain an understanding of the general concepts of programming, and obtain a solid foundation in the use of MATLAB. Students taking the course will get a MATLAB Online license free of charge for the duration of the course. The students are encouraged to consult the eBook that this course is based on. More information about these resources can be found on the Resources menu on the right.

Course Objective:

  • To familiarize the student in introducing and exploring MATLAB.
  • To enable the student on how to approach for solving Engineering problems using programming.
  • To prepare the students to use MATLAB in their project works.
  • To provide a foundation in use of this software’s for real time applications.

Course Outcome:

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to

  1. Express programming for engineering problems.
  2. Write basic mathematical, electrical, electronic problems in MATLAB.
  3. Do projects in image processing, control system using MATLAB.

Course Duration: 3 Months
