DSD: Introduction to Matlab
Course Description:

The course will enable learners to master the basic elements of the MATLAB language and its programming environment. Early sessions, combined with off-line materials, introduce data structures and control structures in MATLAB in a hands on, practical way. Later, learners will complete a short programming project in pairs.


You must have a good understanding of Matrix mathematics.

As well as an understanding of matrices, participants will benefit from an understanding of linear algebra, basic statistics and calculus as relevant to their interest.


Please ensure you are using Desktop@UCL or the UCL VPN when booking because you need to be on the UCL network to use the system.

Please note the course will take place in-person on the UCL Bloomsbury campus over two full days.

At the end of this course you will be able to:
  • identify the elements of the MATLAB interface;
  • use both scalar and array data in your programs;
  • create and use your own functions;
  • write useful MATLAB scripts and programs for your work.
Intended Audience:
This course is aimed at those who wish to learn to use Matlab to perform matrix mathematical programming.
