Time: 6:30 - 9 p.m.
Location: Friend Center Auditorium (101)
Other: Registration is required. Register HERE.

The MATLAB short course on programming will be offered again this year to engineering undergraduate and graduate students. It is intended for students who already have some familiarity with programming (e.g., COS 126) and linear algebra (e.g., MAT 202). MATLAB is used in many upper level engineering courses and students find it useful for performing a wide variety of technical computing tasks for their senior independent work. The course is open to currently enrolled Princeton undergraduate and graduate students only. It carries no credit and will not appear on your transcript.

Course Format
The MATLAB course has two meetings and registration is required. Each meeting will consist of a lecture presentation from 6:30-7:30 p.m. followed by a hands-on programming tutorial session from 7:30-9 p.m.  Note: Students enrolled in CEE 361/MAE 325 will go to Friend 004 for the programming sessions.

Different material will be covered each day, thus, attendance to both meetings is highly recommended. Course materials will be posted on Blackboard a week prior to the class. 

Enter the Blackboard site.

Software Download
Prior to coming to the first meeting, you are strongly encouraged to download the MATLAB software to your laptop and confirm that it is working properly. Instructions for Windows XP/Vista, UNIX/Linux and Mac OS X can be found here.

Please contact the OIT Help Desk (BEFORE you come to the class) if you have any problems with downloading.

Additional information
You will need to to bring your own laptop with the MATLAB software already installed.

No hard copies of the course materials will be handed out. If you wish to print and bring along the course materials from Blackboard, please do so.
