MATLAB Introductory Workshop, 10/15, 7pm – 9pm

“MATLAB® is a high-level language and interactive environment for numericalMatlab_Logo computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications.”  – MathWorks



Workshop Description
This workshop provides an introduction to MATLAB® interface. The workshop is intended for students with no programming experience, and is designed to assist students to learn basics of programming with MATLAB. The MATLAB interface, variables, arrays, conditional statements, loops, and plots are among the topics that will be explained. At the end of the workshop, students should be able to use MATLAB for their course work, and be ready to advance their programming skills on their own.

Time: Wednesday, October 15, 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Location: New Media Center (NMC), 130 Lewis Library, First Floor

Workshop preparation:
Students are strongly encouraged to install MATLAB on their computers before the session as the media lab seating may not accommodate all registrants. Princeton University Office of Information Technology (OIT) provides a download link and the procedure to install the latest version of MATLAB (R2014a) for personal computers. The information on how to download MATLAB can be found on the following link:

If students encounter an error during installation, and the process cannot be completed successfully, they should visit tech specialists in their departments, or the OIT associates at the Tech Clinic, Frist Campus Center, First Floor.

For optimal learning experience, students are encouraged to open MATLAB before coming to the workshop, and test the program by using the “command window” to perform basic mathematical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplications, division).
