The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the Matlab environment and language. Students will learn how to create functions and scripts in Matlab language, they will learn about data structures and work with data and their vizualization. The course is followed by the course Programming in Matlab II.


30 points can be earned by solving and submiting assignments on, the assignments will be available every week and must be completed within next lesson (results will be processed automatically, later submition will not be rated). At least 80% of a single task must be processed (even if incorrectly) to get a grading for the task.

70 points can be obtained for the final test in the last hour and limited in time (cca 90 minut),

The final evaluation will be based on the ECTS rating scale F (<50),E (50-59),D (60-69),C (70-79), B (80-89), A (90-100).
