This course introduces students to problem modeling and simulation in engineering practice using one of the main engineering simulation tools - MATLAB. The course will present the basics of MATLAB programming, including MATLAB's data types, flow control, writing external functions, etc. Using MATLAB, students will learn to implement and analyze various methods and techniques of data analysis applied to real-world examples from a range of engineering disciplines, such as signal and image processing, communications engineering, robotics, etc. At the same time, engineering examples will attempt to illustrate how the concepts from the first-year math courses (Calculus 1 and 2, Applied Linear Algebra) are actually used in engineering practice.
