Aims: To introduce computer programming skills in MATLAB.
After completing this unit, students should be able to:
(i) Create and debug simple MATLAB Programs
(ii) Solve basic quantitive problems using the MATLAB programming language
(iii) Using MATLAB, make calculations and display results graphically in elementary applications relevant to science and engineering.
Application of the information, techniques and methods discussed in the lectures, to the development of appropriate solutions in MATLAB to quantitative problems related to Electronic and Electrical Engineering. Taught, facilitated and tested.
The MATLAB environment. MATLAB as an interactive calculator. Constants, variables and arithmetic. Creating and running MATLAB programs. Loops and iteration: Summation and recurrence. Use of functions. Arrays and subscripts: sorting and filtering. Modelling simple systems and displaying results graphically. Matrices and matrix facilities of MATLAB. 2D and 3D graphics.
