Introduction to MATLAB

Dates: August 19 - 23, 2019 / Time: 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM / Location: Building 1022, Room 101

Cost: $500 per person


This introduction to MATLAB® course is intended specifically to prepare students in the marine sciences for the programming and computational challenges they will encounter. No previous programming experience is necessary or expected. The course will be taught in a very “hands-on” manner. Sample problems will be worked out collaboratively on the whiteboard and in MATLAB®, and programming exercises will be assigned and discussed each day.

 Student Learning Outcomes:

  • Input and manipulate data of various formats

  • Perform mathematical operations on scalar and vector data

  • Save data and computations in various formats

  • Write scripts and functions (programs) for repetitive and/or complex tasks

  • Create graphics, such as plots and histograms, for visually analyzing data and computational output

  • Learn how to utilize MATLAB® in new ways
