University of Plymouth: Introduction to Matlab Environment and Scripts

February 19, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Matlab is a powerful piece of software that is a programming language, but which also has some features in common with statistical packages like SPSS, and other features that make it more like a spreadsheet or database. As a result it can seem bewildering and complex. However, at its simplest it is just a very sophisticated calculator with great graph drawing facilities which make many routine data analysis and presentation tasks a breeze. Give it a try before you decide.

Intended learning outcomes:

  • To introduce new and inexperienced users to the Matlab programming environment, basic mathematical and statistical operations on small data sets, using the GUI to draw simple graphs, exporting results to document preparation software, and an introduction to scripting.

Facilitator: Dr Martin Coath
Applicability: Suitable for most research students and research staff.

Course dates and times: 

  • 19 February 2020, 1000-1300
  • 18 March 2020, 1000-1300
