Based on the new 'guided-tour' concept that eliminates the start-up transient encountered in learning new programming languages, this beginner's introduction to MATLAB teaches a sufficient subset of the functionality and gives the reader practical experience on how to find more information. Recent developments in MATLAB to advance programming are described using realistic examples in order to prepare students for larger programming projects. In addition, a large number of exercises, tips, and solutions mean that the course can be followed with or without a computer. The development of MATLAB programming and its use in engineering courses makes this a valuable self-study guide for both engineering students and practicing engineers.

Brooks/Cole Excellent examples for general engineering problem solving Doveton J (1986) Log analysis of subsurface geology ... logs Palm WJ (2001) Introduction to MATLAB 6 for engineers, McGraw Hill (with a supplement for Matlab 6.5).
This textbook provides a general introduction to the most important nondestructive testing (NDT) exploration methods for cultural heritage sites. It and highlights the application of NDT exploration methods to archaeology and monumental property. The ability to gauge the extent of an archaeological deposit or the state of preservation of artefacts without resorting to destructive actions is extremely useful in identifying unknown or potential artefacts, and can help to understand and approach a given site in a more targeted manner, both for excavation and restoration operations. This book describes the main physical principles, campaign procedures, and processing and interpretation techniques of NDT, while also introducing a new technique and algorithm for data acquisition and processing. A large section of the book is devoted to actual on-site applications, and focuses on significant historical-archaeological sites in Italy and Turkey. The book offers an essential reference guide for students and scientists in archaeology, geophysics, architecture, and the engineering disciplines, as well as specialists.

Computer Tools for Electrical Engineers: MATLAB & SPICE is designed to meet the specific needs of electrical and computer engineering undergraduates with little or no prior experience with programming and matrix algebra. Computer Tools focuses on the use of MATLAB within an electrical and computer engineering curriculum, and it concludes with circuit simulation using the freely-available application LTspice by Analog Devices. The text emphasizes the development of practical skills that students will use in future EE and ECE coursework, with programming chapters, practical examples, and problem sets that address common electrical engineering concerns. The design of Computer Tools also draws upon the authors? extensive involvement in pedagogical research, writing, and active learning strategies.

The text uses a class-tested learning approach and accessible two-color page design to guide students from basic programming to the skills needed for future coursework and engineering practice.
All disciplines of science and engineering use numerical methods for complex problem analysis, due to the highly mathematical nature of the field. Analytical methods alone are unable to solve many complex problems engineering students and professionals confront. Introduction to MATLAB® Programming for Engineers and Scientists examines the basic elements of code writing, and describes MATLAB® methods for solving common engineering problems and applications across the range of engineering disciplines. The text uses a class-tested learning approach and accessible two-color page design to guide students from basic programming to the skills needed for future coursework and engineering practice.
MATLAB Programming for Engineers
Release on 2002 | by Stephen J. Chapman
MATLAB provides several built in toolkits to help students accomplish these tasks, as well as an integrated devlopment environment. This book is distinctly unique from other MATLAB books in two ways.
The first text of its kind, Stephen Chapman's best selling book on MATLAB has now been updated to reflect MATLAB 6.0. The first edition has been highly successful in engineering schools where introductory programming is taught using MATLAB rather than a traditional programming language. Although C, C++, and Java suit the needs of computer science students well, most engineering students will not be programmers by trade. Engineering students use computer tools to perform complex tasks such as scientific calculations, data analysis, simulations, and visualization: all skills students will use again in upper level classes. MATLAB provides several built in toolkits to help students accomplish these tasks, as well as an integrated devlopment environment. This book is distinctly unique from other MATLAB books in two ways. First, it is an introduction to MATLAB as a technical programming language rather than an introduction to the MATLAB environment. The author includes numerous pedagogical tools such as special boxes that highlight good programming practices, boxes that detail common pitfalls in MATLAB programming, and numerous programming exercises and examples. The book also makes wide use of MATLAB's predefined functions that provide tested solutions and time saved in writing subroutines or functions. Second, the book teaches students how to write clean, efficient, and documented programs using sound problem solving techniques. Top-down programming methodology is introduced to the students in Ch. 3 and is used consistently thoughout the rest of the book. This encourages students to think about the proper design of a program before beginning to code.
Contrary to what students, and society, are conditioned to think, obtaining a college degree does not automatically result in a job, let alone a dream career. In the last year, alone, half of college graduates are either jobless or underemployed in positions that don’t fully use their skills and knowledge.
