Matlab for Data Analysis and Calibration

Short Course Description

Matlab for Data Analysis is an online short course designed to teach techniques in Matlab for analysis of data such as experimental, model output and calibration of control algorithms. 

Learn how to import data from sources such as Excel, Inca and text files, how to manipulate the data using filtering, complex calculations and integration and how to work with multi-dimensional data tables for use in control calibration.

Basic knowledge of  Matlab, specifically basic Matlab command line operations and programming is required.


Upon completion of this short course, students will gain skills in:

  • Data import technique     
  • Basic data processing 
  • Analysis automation
  • Data organization and export 
  • Manipulation of multi-dimensional data
