MATLAB Course for Beginners

MATLAB is a professional development environment frequently used for numerical calculations or processing and visualization of scientific results. MATLAB is, among others, suitable for image and signal processing or the analysis, evaluation and visualization of data sets acquired in scientific experiments.

Additional packages cover a broad variety of requirements from researchers of multiple fields, including Aerospace, Biology, Finance or Medicine and many other disciplines. Compared to other programming languages like C or C++, problems can be solved with MATLAB simpler and faster due to the wide range of available functions and the ease of operation.

This workshop is addressed to doctoral researchers from all disciplines with no or little knowledge about MATLAB. The trainers will systematically introduce the basic functions and possible applications of this programming language.
