MATLAB and Simulink Seminars

MATLAB Technical Sessions at University of British Columbia

University of British Columbia KAIS 2020, Vancouver, BC, Canada


Please join us for complimentary MATLAB seminars. Faculty, staff, researchers and students are all welcome to attend.


Session 1: Programming with MATLAB

10:00 – 11:30 AM 

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 seminar to learn more about programming capabilities in MATLAB and to learn how to be more productive working with MATLAB.

Topics covered will include:

  • Basics of the MATLAB programming language
  • Moving from scripts to functions
  • Building robust, maintainable functions
  • Tools for efficient program development
  • Using and authoring objects in MATLAB

Session 2: Data Analytics with MATLAB

12:00 – 1:30 PM

In this seminar, you will learn how Data Analytics can turn large volumes of complex data into actionable information and improve design and decision-making processes.  You will learn approaches and techniques available in MATLAB® to tackle these challenges, including:

  • Accessing, exploring, and analyzing data stored in files, the web, and data warehouses
  • Tips for cleaning, visualizing, and combining complex multivariate data sets
  • Prototyping, testing, and refining predictive models using machine learning methods
  • Integrating and running analytics within enterprise business systems and interactive web applications

Who Should Attend

Those attending the seminar will be expected to either have a rudimentary knowledge of MATLAB or have knowledge of other programming languages.
