The online self-paced course – MATLAB Essentials – will be presented through edX and was created as an introductory course for students and professionals who need to learn MATLAB to advance their education or careers. MATLAB is used by millions of engineers and scientists worldwide 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.

In addition, say the companies, 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,” says 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.”

Craig Santos, Director of Training Services for MathWorks adds, “MathWorks is committed to accelerating engineering and scientific education, and opening access to MATLAB for learners everywhere. edX is renowned for its high caliber curriculum and user-friendly platform, and this course provides a strong foundation for those looking to develop MATLAB skills. We look forward to offering additional learning content through edX in the future.”

The “MATLAB Essentials” course is now open for registration. The course starts on January 2, 2022 and is estimated to take four weeks at about four to seven hours per week. It is free with an optional upgrade available.
