The Postdoctoral Association of Colorado, Boulder has organized this series of monthly tutorials/workshops on topics that may be useful to postdocs, students, and faculties across different disciplines.

Everyone is invited to attend! If you'd like to offer to give one workshop, and/or have topic ideas, please fill out this form. We'll be adding new topics as people offer them!

Please note: These tutorials are given by postdocs, but are intended for all types of audience (students and faculties are welcome!).


In this tutorial, we will learn the fundamentals of programming in MATLAB.

It is important that you have MATLAB installed on your machine and bring your laptop to the workshop. If you do not have a current MATLAB installation, please use the Software Downloads and Licensing website of the University so that you can download it and activate it with your free license associated with the University.

We are going to explore different data types and structures (from the basic types, array and matrices, to the more advanced cells). We are going to learn how to display, print and publish our results in different formats. We are going to learn how to debug our code and how to do some data analysis and visualization. Materials useful for the MATLAB tutorial will be further available on this dedicated GitHub repository for attendees to download.
