MATLAB® is a high-level language and interactive environment that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages such as C, C++, and Fortran.

You can use MATLAB in a wide range of applications, including signal and image processing, communications, control design, test and measurement, financial modeling and analysis, and computational biology. Add-on toolboxes (collections of special-purpose MATLAB functions, available separately) extend the MATLAB environment to solve particular classes of problems in these application areas.

These pages will give you examples how you can engage with the Matlab community at the University of Birmingham, in order to further your understanding of how Matlab can help in your research.

The Birmingham Environment for Academic Research (BlueBEAR) was successful in obtaining funding from the ‘University of Birmingham Annual Fund’ from the Alumni of the University. Part of this award was to get a student drawn from the student community (trainer) who will be able to support new postgraduate students in making a more rapid and effective start to their research. BlueBEAR therefore is announcing a training course on a software package which is used in scientific, mathematical computing and visualization called MATLAB. The trainer is final year research student Leon Chuang from Mathematics. The course is also held in cooperation with the BlueBEAR MATLAB special interest group.
