Making calculations is at the heart of every science. In this course we will learn the programming language MATLAB and write programs to implement mathematical concepts that frequently appear in science and engineering. Through programming we will gain better understanding of some mathematical ideas prevalent in all sciences and how related calculations are done and the reason they work. MATLAB is particularly popular among engineers but it is very similar in its principles to other scientific programming languages, such as R, commonly used by statisticians, biologists and other scientists.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
|Campus||Old Aberdeen||Sustained Study||No|
In this course, students will:
1. Learn the basics of the programming language MATLAB.
2. Understand mathematical concepts by programming them. For example, limits, derivatives, integrals.
3. Discuss concepts from statistics such as linear regression and hypothesis tests and write simple computer programs to implement them.
4. Know how MATLAB can help us solve systems of linear equation, differential equations and more.
In this course you will learn to use the computer language MATLAB, which is a useful tool in engineering and sciences. The course will cover the basics of programming in MATLAB, and will also cover mathematical ideas and recipes, and will teach you how to implement them in MATLAB.
