MATLAB: Programming basics

This session aims to provide hands-on learning of MATLAB programming.

This session will introduce the basics of the programming with Matlab software tool and take you through very basic exercises which enable the learners to understand the benefits of programming capabilities of MATLAB.

Programming in MATLAB is user friendly, relatively easy to learn, to use the rich programming capability of MATLAB, able to use built-in MATLAB routine very effectively and allows you to make the programme as generic as possible.

Aimed at

Any Doctoral Researchers or Doctoral Research staff who are beginners to MATLAB and have attended the "Introduction to MATLAB" workshop


Participants should have attended to the previous workshop “MATLAB: Getting started” or have some basic knowledge about this software.
