Data analysis in MATLAB

Go to application form.

Do you need to analyse and plot your measured data? Are you tired of manually processing many files? MATLAB is a general computer program designed for flexible calculations on data and is used by many scientists. In this course you will learn the basic setup of the program and its scripting language. After the course you are able to write basic scripts to process your data and make plots and images. Also you learn to use more advanced scripts and toolboxes. If you bring your own data to the course, we can help you getting started with loading and displaying your measurements.

The course is given in one week on five afternoons (13.00 – 17.00). This ia a annual course.
