MathWorks, the leading developer of mathematical computing software for engineers and scientists, in partnership with edX, the leading global online learning platform, today announced the availability of MATLAB Essentials, an introductory course on the widely used programming environment, through edX. Registration for the course is now open at www.edx.org/course/matlab-Essentials.
MATLAB Essentials was created as an introductory course for students and professionals who need to learn MATLAB® to advance their education or careers. Millions of engineers and scientists worldwide use MATLAB to build advanced applications in machine learning, deep learning, signal processing, communications, image processing, and control systems.
Students of the course will master the essentials of MATLAB to perform data visualization, data analysis, programming, and app design interactively with minimum time writing code. The course takes approximately four weeks and, upon completion, learners will be able to process, analyze, and visualize data collected nearly everywhere in today's digital world. Additionally, the course will give participants the skills needed to prepare for the MathWorks Certified MATLAB Associate exam. Certification verifies valuable transferable skills to help accelerate academic and professional growth.
“Growth in the high technology industry due to Industry 4.0 continues to accelerate, and that means even greater demand for workers with foundational programming skills like MATLAB,” said Anant Agarwal, edX Founder and MIT Professor. “Partnering with MathWorks to bring this essential course to our community of 40 million learners means more people will have access to this career-relevant knowledge, giving them a leg up in the competitive job market.”
