About this Course

Whether of engineering, science, economics or medical background, you are about to join over 2 million users of MATLAB that cut across these backgrounds; a multi-paradigm numerical computing environment and fourth-generation programming language that allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs written in other languages, including C, C++, C#, Java, Fortran and Python with additional package, Simulink, adds graphical multi-domain simulation and model-based design for dynamic and embedded systems.

This course starts from the elementary topics, then progressively and systematically advances to more advanced (but well explained) topics in MATLAB. It touches the major topics Engineers and Scientists meet on daily bases and major aspects of MATLAB you need to progress to become an expert. After this course, you can stand boldly and tackle those difficult problems on your own with MATLAB and be able to proceed and specialize on any aspect of MATLAB you choose to.

The videos and lecture materials are straight to the point.

You will get to learn some more things and also understand some key facts emphasized in the lectures.

The instructor's lecture notes used for each lecture is also provided so you don’t need to bother writing, you will need to just pay attention to the lectures because all your needs are provided. Beside, all the codes used in the course are also provided.

In case you don’t have MATLAB already installed in your system, there are lectures on the various ways you can acquire MATLAB and the procedures involved in its installation.

In this course, you will typically become a guru and will move from zero knowledge in MATLAB to hero.

Basic knowledge
General Knowledge of Computer, knowledge of high school and a bit of college math.
A desire to learn, to take action and to ask for help when needed


What you will learn

Install and activate MATLAB successfully
Perform Arithmetic and Algebraic operations with MATLAB
Make both 2-D and 3-D plots, add annotations, Greek letters, saving your plots on several formats like fig, png, epsc etc, and make your plots look like those found on research papers
Solve Calculus Problems like Z transforms, Laplace transforms, Fourier transforms, Taylor and Maclaurin's series expansion, Limits, Left and Right hand limits, symbolic summation etc with Matlab
Perform formula manipulation and simplification, factorization and expansion with Matlab
Perform arithmetic operations on Real and Complex numbers
Perform analytic and numerical differentiation and integration
Find solutions to ODE problems including Systems of ODEs both analytically and numerically with Matlab
Perform the following operations on Polynomials: find polynomial roots, integrate and differentiate polynomials, polynomial curve fitting etc
Solve matrix and vector problems with Matlab like generating special matrices, inverse, rank, reduced echelon, transpose, LU factorization, eigen values and vectors, diagonization, orthogonal, norm, determinant, concatenation and several matrix operations

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
