Dénes Szűcs runs an 8-hour intensive course entitled 'Practical introduction to MATLAB Programming'. The course focuses on practical hands-on variable handling and programming implementation rather than on theory. This course is intended for those who have never programmed before including those who only call/run Matlab scripts but are not familiar with how code works and how matrices are handled in Matlab. (Note that calling a couple of scripts is not 'real' programming.)

It is essential that you download and install the latest version of Matlab on your own laptop before the sessions (see www.mathworks.com). Cambridge students can download and install Matlab from mathworks.com for free with their CRSid. Select and install all packages available to you. If you have pre-installed Matlab you can immediately try to write ‘live’ programme code. The best way to learn Matlab is to write and run code.

It is advisable that you skim through the excellent free resource Getting Started and Language Fundamentals
