EGR 252 - MATLAB for Engineers
This course will provide an introduction to the numerical computing and graphics environment MATLAB and is intended for beginning engineering students. The MATLAB desktop environment will be introduced. Data analysis skills related to engineering applications will be developed, with attention to writing optimized routines to analyze data sets using matrix algebra and vectorization of functions. Basic graphics and visualization will be covered, including two-dimensional and three-dimensional graphing, contouring, and animations. Students will also be introduced to the development of dynamic models using the related Simulink software.
2 Class Hours, 2 Laboratory Hours
