IEEE Central Coast MATLAB UPDATE - ONLINE Due to COVID-19 - 18 March 2020 5:30-8:00 PM


Dr. Aycan Hacioglu of Mathworks Presents:

Data Analysis and Visualization with MATLAB for Beginners

Due to restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 Pandemic, Presenter, Dr. Aycan Hacioglu, has set up a Webex meeting in lieu of the scheduled MATLAB Event at UCSB. Below is the link to meeting and Dr. Hacioglu’s Instructions:


Please share the link with attendees.

  • When attendees click on the link, they will see the event description and “Register’’ button in blue next to “Event Status”.
  • Attendees can register with their e-mail names, e-mail addresses. Once they register, registration approval will automatically be sent to the e-mail address they used while registering.
  • In the approval e-mail, attendees will find the event number, event password, “Join Event” button and phone numbers they can call if they would like to join the audio conference via phone.
  • In case anyone has any audio issues with their computers, please encourage them to join via phone for the audio part and follow the presentation from the “Join Event” link.

At the beginning of the presentation, I will display a slide with join via phone information so that in case anyone was audio issues, they could join by phone in case they miss the instructions in the registration approval.

I will also share the slides and MATLAB files we will go over as a link, so if anyone likes to follow along, they will get an opportunity to do so in the seminar section. (Please refer to my earlier e-mail about MATLAB installation/access for seminar part)

For hands-on, MATLAB Onramp part, we’ll show share the link of MATLAB Onramp and show the steps to get to that online training.

Data Analysis and Visualization with MATLAB for Beginners


MATLAB is a programming environment for algorithm development, data analysis, visualization, and numerical computation. Using MATLAB, you can solve technical computing problems faster than with traditional programming languages, such as C, C++, and Fortran.  

During this introductory technical seminar, we will provide an overview of MATLAB and introduce you to the powerful statistical analysis and visualization capabilities available in the MATLAB product family. We will demonstrate how to acquire, analyze and visualize data, introduce desktop tools for editing and debugging code, and show you how to publish your results. 

Highlights include:  

  • Accessing data from files, spreadsheets and other sources  
  • Performing statistical analysis, curve and surface fitting routines  
  • Developing algorithms and applications to automate your workflow  
  • Generating reports in HTML and other file formats to share your work  

We will then wrap up with a hand on session, interactive MATLAB Onramp training. This will be followed by a short competition with winners getting exciting prizes!


-  MATLAB in academia and industry: 15 min

-  MATLAB Onramp: 1 hr. 30 min

Before Class Preparation:


Dr. Aycan Hacioglu is a Customer Success Engineer at MathWorks. She has a BS in Chemical Engineering from Bogazici University, TuAycan Hacioglurkey and a jointly awarded Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Florida and Universite Lille1-Sciences and Technologies, France. Before joining MathWorks, she was an Assistant Teaching Professor at the Chemical Engineering Department of the University of Missouri for 3.5 years. She extensively used MATLAB for fluid dynamics and mass transfer simulations. She is experienced in mathematical modeling, process simulations, numerical methods and perturbation theory. She also integrated MATLAB to separation processes and transport phenomena courses she taught. She is excited to share her experience and passion to use MathWorks
