This course teaches computer programming to those with little to no previous experience. It uses the programming system and language called MATLAB to do so because it is easy to learn, versatile and very useful for engineers and other professionals. MATLAB is a special–purpose language that is an excellent choice for writing moderate–size programs that solve problems involving the manipulation of numbers. The design of the language makes it possible to write a powerful program in a few lines. The problems may be relatively complex, while the MATLAB programs that solve them are relatively simple: relative, that is, to the equivalent program written in a general–purpose language, such as C++ or Java. As a result, MATLAB is being used in a wide variety of domains from the natural sciences, through all disciplines of engineering, to finance, and beyond, and it is heavily used in industry. Hence, a solid background in MATLAB is an indispensable skill in today’s job market. Nevertheless, this course is not a MATLAB tutorial. It is an introductory programming course that uses MATLAB to illustrate general concepts in computer science and programming. Students who successfully complete this course will become familiar with general concepts in computer science, gain an …

Very good teaching. Perfect to get Matlab basics. Thanks
Abyaz A –
It is such an amazing course to start your journey with Matlab. I will recommend this over any other Matlab introductory courses. Best of luck.
JARPULA B –
its very easy to learn matlab ,
NAULESH K –
mike ! sir,you are awesome.
Aniket R –
Great for beginners, you get to approach programming slightly by the lens of a mathematician, an amazing course, but for someone a bit towards novice side, go for it, it finds application in every major research field, you won’t regret it.
Robert F –
This is a fairly straightforward course. The instructor Dr. Fitzpatrick is excellent and prepares you to do well on the assignments, quizzes, tests and programming assignments. The support via the Discussion Forum is also great. All in all very good. Some math background is certainly a plus.
Ruben J –
Awesome course. Very clear and interesting
kshitiz –
This course on Matlab is very interesting and lots of learning, assignments are good and challenging. Brandon Sir and his discussion forum is very helpful to solve assignments. This has created a good hands on experience of Matlab programming, and will help me in learning more Matlab further. Thank You
Yamini K –
This course is really helpful, who wants to get basic idea about the matlab. And moreover for beginners this is perfect course
Preethi V –
best course for matlab
Gaurav S –
AMAZING COURSE WITH GOOD VIDEO LECTURES
Shraddha S J –
This course is really good. This course came handy for me for my post–graduation project. Because of this course now I can see or think through various aspects of the problem cause the solution is just lying there. Though I left this course in between cause I stuck on an assignment problem however I completed this course at last. Discussion forums are really helpful. Questions asked are quality questions. The answers or hints provided by staff are very well informed. They change your view of the problem. I really want to say Thank you to Mr. Mike Fitzpatrick, Akos Ledeczi, Brandon Armstrong (Teaching Staff) and the coursera team for this awesome course.
Max I –
Very good, explains things well, good teacher.
Shahid A –
Anyone can take this course and he/she will surely get the basics idea of MATLAB
Joseph A –
I couldn’t have enjoyed this course more. The lessons were very well done and the information was presented in a manner that makes it easy to retain. The programming assignments gradually became more and more difficult, but I felt that they really helped me learn MATLAB and gave me a solid programming foundation. Awesome course and highly recommend!
Paul O –
This course deserves 5 stars because the teacher is very thorough. He and his team really put a lot of work into creating an excellent course for beginners. I found it tedious in places because I came to the course with a lot of previous programming experience. This course covers basic programming and MATLAB. I did learn what I need to learn about MATLAB.
Vamsi K –
the course was good, it really helped a lot. thanks for the help. i am able to learn new skill
SRINIVAS B –
Excellent. Thank you for Coursera.
Bala V –
Excellant for brgineers
Xiaoran Y –
a great course!
saipriya s k –
a good experience satisfied with the discussions and everything
Theotime D –
Very clear, the teacher makes some jokes to break the rythm, I loved it. Thank you.
Justin L –
Very enjoyable, after finishing this course I am much more familiar with how to program in MATLAB, and feel confident that I can achieve anything I want to do with it. The course starts off gently, but gets relatively steep in difficulty towards the end. The lead instructor had a dry but funny sense of humour which helped me stay alert whilst learning, and the staff in the forums were very helpful. If you want to learn a bit about programming and/or learn MATLAB, this course is excellent!
Isaac M –
Very useful course
Alberto R –
Great course. I have learned the basis and the enviroment of MatLab. Thanks!
A V V Y C –
Good content and the way how Mike explained is price less.
Sabih R K –
This is a great course and as i am from the field of data science so matlab will definitely help me visualize the data
Timon S –
A perfect course to get started with Matlab with very cool excercises to get practical experience!
Andre d A F M –
Excellent experience and amazing programming explanations. I thing that from lesson 4 on, the assessments were very hard to be approved (more difficult than the previous examples). Anyway I really recommend the course for those who has not experience with programming languages (like me) or those that want to know how MATLAB works.
Gizem M E –
It is amazing knowing that you can easily get an access this class who taught by amazing professors. I am so thankful that you gave me this opportunity to be part of coursera.
Enrico D –
Clean and practical MATLAB introduction, really enjoyed
Anastasios P –
I was using MatLab before this course reading the documentation. This course instead, help me realize what I was doing wrong and become a mor effective programmer. It worthed the time I spent dealing with course’s assessments regadless of difficulty.
Amandeep k –
It is wonderful course. Most of the assignments were easy, but few were really hard. Discussion on forums helped me a lot for completing the assignments.
Vikram R –
I am in between the course however i think i am in a position to give feedback. The course lecture video is short and crisp giving so much in less time making it time efficient and very helpful.
Bapti N B –
Good course contents with necessary guidelines. Recommended for MATLAB beginners.
Willem v G –
Hi, Thank you very much for the Matlab course on Coursera. It was really very interesting and you kept me interested to the very end. It was not always easy (sometimes I needed help from more clever people then me on the Internet) but that does not matter, the more difficult things in life are, the more worthwhile they are, as we say. I am not a future programmer, I am 70 years old but my doctor told me to keep, together with my body, the brain moving. Well, this course really did. Thanks again and take care, Willem van Gogh

This course is designed for the beginners who have no prior knowledge in the Matlab Programming. In last weeks assignments are a little bit difficult but go through the discussion forums and ask things.

Exceptionally motivating course to learn Programming using MATLAB
Hassaan I A –
Very helpful for any eager to learn beginner
VASILIKI D –
Very usefull, learning a lot of interesting and important things like thinking like a computer, but it was a little bit hard in the last weeks and i think that these things in these weeks are not using in every day life from a no programmer.
