Teaching Programming with MATLAB


Be part of one of the largest educational conversations of 2021! Join MathWorks for our global event regarding the future of teaching programming. Our engineers will entertain you with an open discussion regarding common challenges in teaching programming in foundational university courses and show you how to address them. They will present classroom-ready resources that can be immediately deployed in your course.

Computing skills are increasingly important for scientists and engineers. Your students need to be able to design and create computer programs to solve problems efficiently and gain a deeper understanding of complex systems during their studies and careers.

You will learn how to introduce your students to fundamental concepts and principles of computer programming in an accessible way, with MATLAB.


You will learn about approaches and resources to teaching:

  • Concepts such as variables, expressions and operators.
  • Constructs such as iteration and conditional statements.
  • How to write and test programmes.
  • How to visualise data.

Who Should Attend

Teaching staff and students interested in teaching programming in a foundational university course.


After the webinar all registered participants will receive jump starter packages containing the resources presented during the session. These include the slides, examples and additional educational resources. We encourage you to try these examples. The following week we will hold a feedback session where we will cover additional technical demonstrations and answer any questions you might have.

By registering for the webinar, we will automatically reserve a place for you at the office hour session on May 12 at 1:00 PM CEST/4:30 PM IST.
