Teaching methods

Teaching will take place through lectures, but with a focus on discussion and
direct dialogue with the students, which will , in class, to make proposals for
study or debate.
During the course will be organized 12 hours of meetings with a foreign teacher with recognized expertise in the use of MATLAB in several quantitative issues. This series of lectures will study in depth the methodologies and findings applications chosen in agreement with the students about some of the activities of their interest.

Assessment and Evaluation

The exam is oral and structured as follows: the student solves in writing a short exercise and discusses the answer with the teacher.
Each application is evaluated by:
a) the relevance of the answer over demand
b ) the correct syntax of the MATLAB language
c ) the ability to use the language of the program.

Further information

Financial and decision maker professionals worldwide use the interactive programming environment and prebuilt computational libraries of MATLAB® to develop quantitative applications.
