Basics concepts are well covered within a short time and a few videos. I would recommend it for those who want to learn complete basics. but to master it, you need to enrol in a specialization course.

This was a great course. I already learned a bit of MATLAB during my studies and enjoyed it at the time, but I found that I was lacking some core skills. This course was both entertaining and challenging at the same time. I recommended this course to a few people already! Although I'd say that you might need more time to solve the problems than stated in the course, but your milage may vary. Could be that I am just slow, too :-).

First, I would like to thank Mr. Mike Fitzpatrick and Mr. Akos Lebeczi for providing such a great Introduction to Matlab course.
I would highly recommend this course for anyone who is looking for a complete Introductory course for Matlab. Lectures are helpful and informative. I found them pretty helpful and I do recommend everyone to pay close attention to what Mr. Mike talks about. I hope you'll enjoy this course. Good Luck!!!

It is a pretty nice course that teaches me how to programming using MATLAB. MATLAB is quite a powerful tool that can help handle the data. When I was learning about image processing, I found that MATLAB is quite a handy tool for processing images. In order to learn how to use this powerful tool I took. I signed up this course. But the image toolbox is not covered enough in this course. Maybe I should take some other courses.

Excellent, as a self-learned MATLAB user thought of myself as being advanced, but I could learn quite a few things. Very verbose, which lets you slow down or pick up the pace, as needed. The instructor is nothing short of amazing, a practiced teacher who loves teaching. Assignments are just about the right level of challenge, without being frustrating except maybe one or two assignments whose wording could be a bit clearer.

it was a long journey but eventually paid off , Iam a mechanical engineering student now i deeply understand programming , I use MATLAB often to perform calculations and display results in graphs when doing a report in my undergraduate courses, my professors were thrilled and it helped me get high grads , i really encourage any one to take this course the instructors are very friendly and respond to any of our inquiries ,

The course is very good for intermediate level people. Highly recommended for the people who is like me who thinks they know basics in matlab, but I can bet your will be stunned how many thing works which you didn't know previously. The last three assignments are horrible. I've spend at least full 4 days to complete them. But overall good experience. Recommended for people who know little bit matlab but wants to dig more.

Such a wonderful experience. I never thought someone can teach MATLAB in such a way that I will be addicted to programming with MATLAB. A very very special thanks to Mr. Mike Fitzpatrick for such lively classes and to the designers of this course. Thanks to coursera for making this course accessible to each one of us. I have learned a lot from this course and I will surely go for the next course in this specialisation.

Learning was never this fun, thanks to Vanderbilt University and Coursera. The course had high-quality content, great instructors, and right on exercises. I highly recommend anyone who wants to get a taste of MATLAB, its basic capabilities, and things you can accomplish using it, this should be your go.
Overall the course was fun learning, and the power of MATLAB is immense just gives you head-on with your research.

It was awesome course for a beginner, though the course gets tougher as weeks pass on still the challenges are brainstorming and helps in developing problem-solving skills. discussion forum helped me a lot in completing my assignments whenever I go out of the track, especially during the final problems. on the whole I would recommend this course for a Matlab beginner with some beginner level of programming skills.

Initially I wanted to learn MATLAB for programming skills and try and understand MATLAB functions.
I am glad I did this course and have almost got the sufficient benefits from this course.
I am confident I can be more fruitful in my work and projects in coming future enhancing my skills further on.
Thank you very much for this course and I ask everyone to take this course. You are going to get some real knowledge.

it have been a great course, i actually had a matlab course in my university, but this one is so much better and more challenging than the first couse at my university.
i am extremely happy to have this course, because it brought back to me the love of matlab after that terrible course at my college.
thank you all for your hard work, and hope i will meet Dr. fitzpatrik and the staff one day to thank them in person.

This course is a great introduction to programming. The homework can be a bit tough, as it will take the concepts taught in the week and have you apply them in novel ways, oftentimes in ways you have to really think through to solve the problem at hand. In doing this, you'll finish the course with a strong understanding of how to use MATLAB, and beyond that the know-how for learning other programming languages.

An umbrella package for the uninitiated as it starts from scratch and teaches you enough that you get the confidence to explore what MATLAB has got to offer apart from the syllabus covered in the MOOC. Very satisfied after doing this course and fingers crossed that that doing this course will be fruitful and I will be benefited by it.
Thank you for this wonderful course that ignited in me the spark to code!

The course is really very good for beginners. If I had met such a course many years ago, I would have been a programmer a long time ago. After performing various tasks, I learned a lot. Thank you Vanderbilt University, thanks lecturer Mike Fitzpatrick, thanks to all the other teachers and assistants. You do a very useful and good business for the community of novice programmers, scientists and engineers.

This course was an amazing experience! Lectures were simple an easy to follow, easy to understand and the examples given were easy to repeat. The level of the homework required patience. It was easy at the beginning, but it become more challenging every week. Once you have completed this course, you will feel that you have acquired great skills to start your programming career with Matlab. Thanks a lot!

For those who wish to know just the basics of MATLAB, ie, the language itself, this is the perfect course. This is also the perfect course if your university is making you do MATLAB in class and you aren't understanding much. Also, believe me, this is the absolutely best course one can take to start programming. I wish someone had explained programming concepts to me when I had just started programming

Wow!!! this experience was more enjoyable than my normal class room lectures. the way the course was arranged, the way the professors where wonderful at administering this knowledge. The most fun part for me was completing my assignment; able to write codes in different way, debugging and finding errors, and the resourceful forum for when you get stuck was a tasking most enjoyable experience.

This provides a great start to anyone who wants to learn MATLAB from ground up, whether if you have programming background or not. Examples are clear and explanatory. Quizzes are challenging. More people should do this course. The quizzes are progressively difficult, but definitely manageable. It is one of the better quality courses that exists on Coursera.
If you are hesitant, try it for a few weeks !

A big thank you to everyone involved in the conception and development of this truly spectacular course. The incredibly funny and intentionally goofy Mike Fitzpatrick made sitting through each video alot more enjoyable regardless of it's length. Its without a doubt that the comprehensive and in depth knowledge provided by this course will benefit my post graduate studies as well as my career goals.

This is a great course! I found too simple the exercises at the beginning and a bit too difficult the exercises near the end of the course. A bit boring the part on Data Types, but I guess it would have been difficult to make it more enjoyable! :) The Professor is not great, is super-incredible!!! I extremely enjoyed his way of teaching and also his humor! His students at Vanderbilt are very lucky!

I have a lot of experience with Matlab, but I took the course to refresh (it's been 10 years) and for my LinkedIn profile. The material was all very familiar so it is difficult to assess the level. But I found the lecturer was extremely engaging with an incredibly good, dry sense of humour. And incredible typing speed ;-) The programming challenges were very well thought out in my humble opinion.

This is a fantastic course for beginners to learn how to use MATLAB. It teaches from the very basics to the more advanced concepts and has really allowed me to extend my mathematical knowledge into programming. My only issue is with the last 2 assignments being really difficult and hard to achieve a simple pass but other than that this is an exceptional course for anyone in the mathematical field.

I want to thank the course organisation and creation team and Mike Sir for bringing such a wonderful course in such a wonderful manner. It was like a roller coaster ride learning this course. The assignments were like games and at the same time they allowed us to apply what we learnt. I think everyone who wants to create an online course should learn the way this course is designed and organised.
