Why learn MATLAB?
MATLAB is a numerical computing environment and programming language developed by MathWorks. While it is most often used by engineers and scientists, it has evolved in ways that have caused more data scientists, statisticians, economists, and data analysts to use it for their work. Advanced MATLAB is typically used for applications that require linear algebra and numerical optimization.
According to Burning Glass, there were 60,000 job postings in the last 12 months requiring MATLAB as a skill. Some of the functional job titles that require this skill are Software Developer, Computer Systems Engineer, Business Intelligence Analyst, or Operations Research Analyst. Advanced MATLAB skills are very marketable and they can be a powerful addition to your resume.
