Course Details

Dear Scholars, Researchers, Professionals and Academicians,

UTMSPACE is co-organizing a 2-Day MATLAB: Hands-On Short Course on 30 Nov - 1 Dec 2013 &  21-22 Dec 2013 for this new academic year. 

MATLAB is a software package for numerical computation with high quality graphics facilities. It is an essential simulation tool in research works where it includes but not limited to analyzing, interpreting, visualization and simulation. The comprehensive course is suitable for all stages of studies (First Year - Final Year, Postgraduates and Staffs), Final Year Projects or Research Projects.

This course is conducted by Dr Michael Tan Loong Peng. He is currently a senior lecturer at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. He graduated from University of Cambridge with PhD in Engineering. He used MATLAB extensively for his research and has published many journals with more than 24 cumulative impact factors.

Participant will learn how to produce high quality graphics for journal publication. Morever, participants will be exposed to real case studies that are related to research work and how MATLAB is used to solve the problem. For instances, how to generate maximally perceptually distinct colours for your figures, plotting with 2 different axis, etc. The workshop will also teach you how to replicate the exact experimental/simulation data and re-plot them in MATLAB for comparison. He will also be sharing his experience in writing research papers, constructing  good m-file command and  generating high quality figure.

The workshop will also teach you how to replicate the exact experimental/simulation data  that you get from published journal paper and and re-plot them in MATLAB for comparison and many more.

In addition, he will be giving tips on how to select the right publisher for your journal submission (with impact factor). He will highlight the key procedures in paper submission, preparing cover letter and addressing comment from reviewers.

Morever, he will be introducing key features of Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, Endnote, 3D structure software, and screen capture software that can assist you in your thesis and journal writing tremendously.

Details of the course are as follow:
