Introduction to Matlab
Monday, February 25, 2019, 09:00am - 12:00pm
This course introduces the Matlab package developed by Mathworks, Inc.  The intent of this introductory course is to familiarize new users with the scope of applications and with the desktop interface from which they can be launched. Basic input/output and programming skills needed to perform elementary data manipulation and analytical tasks in Matlab also are included using simple examples.  After completing this course, a new user should be able to:

  • Import/export data from/to external text files
  • Create and manipulate new variables from the command line
  • Prepare simple macros in the form of M-files
  • Use basic data visualization methods
  • Use a function or procedure from a toolbox
  • Use the built-in help documentation
Prerequisites: None, but instructional lab desktops run on a Windows XP platform so a basic familiarity with Windows is assumed. Familiarity with matrices and elementary linear algebra will be helpful, but not necessary.
Location: FAC 101B
Short courses are for current UT-Austin faculty, staff, and students, and cost $30 per seat. Seating for each class is limited, with registration taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
