Lecturer:
Tutor:
Viktor Adler, Miloslav Čapek (guarantor), Pavel Valtr
Supervisor:
Department of Electromagnetic Field
Synopsis:

Students will learn how to efficiently use both basic and advanced Matlab functions, including graphic user interface design. Emphasis will be put on problem analysis and implementation, understanding Matlab documentation, debugging user-defined functions and independent work with Matlab (proved by work on the project). Knowledge acquired can be applied to a broad spectra of courses taught at FEE (processing labs, final projects) and can be used in future professional career.

Requirements:

max. 2 missed classes, more missed classes in extreme and justified cases only, project hand-in by the end of semester (grade E or better), test pass (grade E or better)

Syllabus of lectures:

Study Objective:

The course will introduce Matlab environment and will teach students to solve simple problems they can face during their further studies or during their professional career. Students will get acquainted with all basic parts of Matlab as defined e.g. by Certified Matlab Associate Exam.
