MATLAB and Simulink Seminars

MATLAB Seminar: Programming with MATLAB and What´s new in MATLAB


MATLAB® is a high-level language that includes mathematical functions for solving engineering and scientific problems. You can produce immediate results by interactively executing commands one at a time. However, MATLAB also provides features of traditional programming languages, including flow control, error handling, and object-oriented programming (OOP). Attend this first seminar to learn more about programming capabilities in MATLAB and to learn how to be more productive working with MATLAB.

This second seminar will cover the newest MATLAB features and show you how to utilize these features to simplify your work, save time, and increase your productivity.
