This note
introduces students to MATLAB programming, and demonstrate it’s use for
scientific computations. The basis of computational techniques are expounded
through various coding examples and problems, and practical ways to use MATLAB
will be discussed. Topics covered includes: Introduction to MATLAB Programming,
Approximations and Errors, Numerical Differentiation and Integration, Linear
Equations, Nonlinear Equations, Regression and Interpolation, Ordinary
Differential Equations.

Introduction to
MATLAB for Engineering Students is a document for an introductory course note in
MATLAB and technical computing. It focuses on the specific features of MATLAB
that are useful for engineering classes. Topics covered includes: Mathematical
functions, Matrix generation, Array operations and Linear equations,
Introduction to programming in MATLAB, Debugging M-files, Main characteristics
of MATLAB.

This note is
intended to assist undergraduates with learning the basics of programming in
general and programming MATLAB in particular.This will explain the MATLAB
command prompt for performing calculations and creating variables.
