About This Class

MATLAB is one of the most important programming languages on Planet Earth. MATLAB is used in academic, industry, business, finance, and engineering.

  • Students use MATLAB for classes
  • Scientists use MATLAB for experiments and data analysis
  • Engineers use MATLAB for simulations
  • Physicists use MATLAB for numerical solvers
  • Financial analysts use MATLAB for prediction and forcasting
  • ... and on and on.

MATLAB really is the language of technical computing.

If you want to learn MATLAB, then this is the course for you!

You will learn MATLAB programming from an experienced teacher, scientist, and writer (that's me!). I have written several books about MATLAB programming (look them up on amazon for reviews) and I have been teaching MATLAB programming and data analysis for almost two decades. 

Course materials (MATLAB scripts, course reader, and exercises) are downloadable from the Class Project list.

And I believe in teaching because, well, because I really like teaching. I've been doing it my whole life. I teach "real-life" courses, online courses, university courses. I've written several books about neuroscience and data analysis, which...
