RSD 6930: Matlab Foundations for Rehabilitation Science

This course introduces Matlab foundations to students and trains them to code, compute, analyze, and plot research data that are commonly collected in rehabilitation science studies. Students do not need to have prior experience in programming to be enrolled in the class.  RSD students do not need prerequisite programming skills to take this class. Sample data will be provided for all lab sessions. Students will need their own data (data type varies from genetic to histological, clinical, behavioral, and driving simulator data) to complete their final assignment.

This course is open to all Rehabilitation Science doctoral students.
