Students will learn how to efficiently use both basic and advanced Matlab functions, including graphic user interface design. Emphasis will be put on problem analysis and implementation, understanding Matlab documentation, debugging user-defined functions and independent work with Matlab (proved by work on the project). Knowledge acquired can be applied to a broad spectra of courses taught at FEE (processing labs, final projects) and can be used in future professional career.
