MATLAB is the premier programming language of scientific computing in university, research, and industry.

Excellent MATLAB programming skills can make or break a career in engineering, physics, biology, finance, and many other fields.

But how do you learn how to program in MATLAB? Sure, you can watch some tutorial videos online, but those videos generally focus on the most basic coding skills, like what is a variable and how to write a for-loop.

Those are important foundations, but they won't make you competitive.

If you want to be competitive, you need to become a master at MATLAB programming. And that's what you'll learn in this course.

This course is different from other MATLAB programming courses!

Rather than having short videos that presents a simple piece of MATLAB syntax, this course starts from the real-world perspective: Problems in data science that you can solve with MATLAB.

Do you need to learn how to filter your signal in MATLAB?  There's a section for that!

Do you have a complicated formula and you need to translate it into MATLAB code and make a graph that simulates the formula with different parameters? Yeah, there's a section on that as well!

Do you need to make a movie of a 3D simulation changing in color over time and then export as an .avi file? This course covers that as well!   

Maybe you want to learn how to make textured landscapes using fractal math, or use SVD to compute the low-rank approximation of a data matrix, or use nonlinear search methods to fit a 3-parameter Gaussian model to data? You guessed it -- it's all covered in this course!

If you are looking for a slow, gentle course that will take baby-steps to teach you what you could have learned on your own, then this is not that course.

If you want to gain confidence in solving real-world problems in MATLAB coding to advance your studies, your research, and your career by learning MATLAB programming from a single course with >35 hours of hands-on instruction from a world-class scientist, teacher, and writer, then this course is definitely right for you.

Key topics covered.

The basic stuff: loops, functions, IO, etc. Core skills you need to be able to progress with MATLAB for scientific computing or data science.

The more intermediate and advanced topics in the course include:

2D and 3D plotting, and data animations (movies)

Image and time series segmentation

Calculus and differential equations

Univariate and multivariate time series cleaning and analysis

Spectral (Fourier) and time-frequency analyses

Linear algebra including eigendecomposition, orthogonalization, and principal components analysis

Generating fractal pictures and time series

Nonparametric statistics and nonlinear model fitting

Decision Making: Solve Problems with Emotional Intelligence

Evaluate your problem solving and decision making by managing emotions and using creativity and intuition objectively

Created by Robin Hills - Business Psychologist, Emotional Intelligence Trainer


Students: 16622, Price: $109.99

Students: 16622, Price:  Paid

How effective are you at processing information from your environment and using emotion to drive your decision making?

How rational and objective are you in problem solving and decision making?

From the decision to rise in the morning to the decision go to close your eyes and go to sleep at night, you are constantly solving problems and making decisions.  Throughout each day you are confronted with a variety of problems and decisions that require a rational, thoughtful response underpinned with good emotional awareness.

This course is about proactively working towards solutions that help you to make timely decisions as you solve work problems to bring value to your company and your customers. In addition, the skills, processes and tools taught in this course can bring value to other aspects of your life.

Good decision making means that you can grasp problems and mindfully devise effective solutions. It means that you can deal realistically with situations as they arise and manage emotions and impulses that may disrupt effective decision making.

Both creativity and mindfulness form a basic part of solving problems along with intuition. Intuition is a decision making process that is often overlooked in business. Applied in a mindful way, and used well, it can add richness and speed to developing realistic solutions to problems.   Critical thinking to work in an emotionally intelligent manner forms a major component of the skills of decision making to overcome unconscious bias.  This is covered in detail within the course.

The course is based around the Decision Making component of Reuven Bar-On's comprehensive assessment of emotional intelligence.  You do not need any knowledge of this model or about emotional intelligence to take the course.  (It is important for me to stress that I have no commercial affiliation with Reuven Bar-on and the EQ-i 2.0 assessment.)

This course is a standalone course for anyone interested in understanding how to solve problems and make good quality decisions more effectively.  It forms part of a comprehensive course that explores emotional intelligence in more depth.

The course covers the ways to stimulate creativity and looks in detail at the fashionable business technique of mindfulness.  Within this course, mindfulness is applied to decision making.

You'll receive all the information that you need and will be coached using loads of practical hints that you can use straight away.

The course is made up of a series of lectures and contains course notes. There are a series of interactive practical activities that involve some interaction with other people and some reflection.

The course material makes up a one to two day workshop so is equivalent to 8 -12 hour's training. It forms part of our advanced emotional intelligence course endorsed by the Institute of Leadership and Management.

By completing this course, you will be able to

  • Identify how to make better decisions through critical thinking and creative problem solving

  • Recognise and remove barriers to creativity to foster an innovative work environment producing practical solutions

  • Discover ways to move beyond familiar ways of thinking and seeing the world

  • Investigate new ways of listening, leading, responding, and innovating

  • Use mindfulness to evaluate all attributes of the different options available and make more informed decisions

PLEASE NOTE - This course is NOT for you if you are not prepared to work through the practical activities that make up a fundamental part of the course.  Your decision making cannot be developed just by watching the video lectures.  It requires you to do some reflective thinking, to get some feedback and to discuss your development with others.  I'm afraid that you won't get the best from the course unless you are prepared to do this.

There are EIGHT practical activities included within the course that are designed to help you to develop your decision making capabilities.  These are

  1. Reflecting about the Emotional Intelligence Course

  2. Assess your Decision Making

  3. Understanding your Reality

  4. Problem Solving with SCAMPER

  5. Impulses and Gratification

  6. Mindfulness: What Affects your Energy?

  7. An Exercise in Critical Thinking

  8. Learning Review

For example, by completing the practical activity "Problem Solving with SCAMPER" you will enable to come up with new ideas when you're trying to develop or improve a product or service.

This course is being continually refined and updated to ensure it remains current and relevant.

Lean Problem-Solving for Team Members and Leaders

Problem Solving Is The Core Activity of Continuous Improvement that Every Team Member Should Know

Created by Lawrence M. Miller, Institute for Leadership Excellence - Best Selling Instructor, Author & Leadership Coach


Students: 11606, Price: $99.99

Students: 11606, Price:  Paid

Your personal success depends on your ability to lead teams! High performing team leaders are promoted and are successful entrepreneurs. Leading teams is the critical competence for leaders at all levels today. And, problem-solving is the basic methodology that drives improvement by teams and lean organizations. This short course provides the basic skills and philosophy of effective problem solving. It is based on 45 years of experience developing teams and implementing lean management or Toyota Production System. I recommend that you go through the course with your team so that you can together practice each of the methods in your real work setting. This is not an “academic” course, but rather it is based on working in manufacturing, healthcare and other industries with hundreds of teams tackling real world problem and engaging in continuous improvement.

Toyota Production System, or lean management and culture, are based on the practice of continuous improvement through problem solving. This lectures reviews the basic principles of lean that apply to problem solving.

The principles of lean that are important to how we solve problems include the following:

  • Respect for People

  • Continuous Improvement

  • Going to Where the Work Get's Done - the Gemba

  • Know the Facts - Graphing the Data and Understanding Trends

  • Applying the Scientific Method of Experimentation

The course covers the following:

The Lean philosophy of problem-solving and continuous improvement.

Healthy attitudes toward problem solving.

Simple situation analysis.

Root cause analysis - the "five why's?"

Brainstorming causes of problems.

The PDCA problem solving model.

The A3 problem solving model.

The skill of brainstorming.

Pareto or the 80/20 rule.

Signal processing problems, solved in MATLAB and in Python

Applications-oriented instruction on signal processing and digital signal processing (DSP) using MATLAB and Python codes

Created by Mike X Cohen - Neuroscientist, writer, professor


Students: 8808, Price: $19.99

Students: 8808, Price:  Paid

Why you need to learn digital signal processing.

Nature is mysterious, beautiful, and complex. Trying to understand nature is deeply rewarding, but also deeply challenging. One of the big challenges in studying nature is data analysis. Nature likes to mix many sources of signals and many sources of noise into the same recordings, and this makes your job difficult.

Therefore, one of the most important goals of time series analysis and signal processing is to denoise: to separate the signals and noises that are mixed into the same data channels.

The big idea of DSP (digital signal processing) is to discover the mysteries that are hidden inside time series data, and this course will teach you the most commonly used discovery strategies.

What's special about this course?

The main focus of this course is on implementing signal processing techniques in MATLAB and in Python. Some theory and equations are shown, but I'm guessing you are reading this because you want to implement DSP techniques on real signals, not just brush up on abstract theory.

The course comes with over 10,000 lines of MATLAB and Python code, plus sample data sets, which you can use to learn from and to adapt to your own coursework or applications.

In this course, you will also learn how to simulate signals in order to test and learn more about your signal processing and analysis methods.

You will also learn how to work with noisy or corrupted signals.

Are there prerequisites?

You need some programming experience. I go through the videos in MATLAB, and you can also follow along using Octave (a free, cross-platform program that emulates MATLAB). I provide corresponding Python code if you prefer Python. You can use any other language, but you would need to do the translation yourself.

I recommend taking my Fourier Transform course before or alongside this course. However, this is not a requirement, and you can succeed in this course without taking the Fourier transform course.

What should you do now?

Watch the sample videos, and check out the reviews of my other courses -- many of them are "best-seller" or "top-rated" and have lots of positive reviews. If you are unsure whether this course is right for you, then feel free to send me a message. I hope you to see you in class!

Management Consulting Approach to Problem Solving

Practical guide with case studies & real life examples how to make better decisions using McKinsey, BCG, Bain tricks

Created by Asen Gyczew - Expert in performance improvement, turnaround and startups


Students: 6411, Price: $109.99

Students: 6411, Price:  Paid

What is the aim of this course?

Time and again you will come across problems that are seemingly unsolvable. In many cases, you don’t even know how to approach them. Luckily, there are a lot of nice management consulting tools, techniques, and frameworks that will help you solve everyday problems. You don’t have to go to a top consulting firm to master them. You can master them by taking my course.

This course will help you drastically improve your skills in solving problems using management consulting tools, techniques, and frameworks. In this course, we will mainly concentrate on solving real-life problems like goal settings and defining what and when to do, estimating the cost of a wedding, losing weight and getting in shape, deciding whether to do an MBA or not, choosing the right boyfriend/girlfriend, deciding whether you should buy a car or not, deciding when to retire and many more. If you have a specific problem just let me know and I will give you tips on how to solve it using the tools presented in this course.

The course is designed for people who want to become more data-driven and less emotional in the way they solve problems and make decisions. Thanks to the course you will be making better decisions and solve problems that have seemed so far unsolvable. In the course you will learn 3 things:

  1. What consulting techniques, tools, and frameworks there are

  2. When to apply each and one of them

  3. How to use them in practice including examples of how to calculate specific things in Excel

The course is based on my 15 years of experience as a consultant in top consulting companies and as a Board Member responsible for strategy, performance improvement, and turn-arounds in the biggest companies from Retail, FMCG, SMG, B2B, and services sector that I worked for. On the basis of what you will find in this course, I have trained over 100 consultants, business analysts, and managers who are now CEO, COO, Directors of Sales, Production, Investment Directors in PE funds, Directors in Consulting Companies, Board Members, etc. On top of that my courses on Udemy were already taken by more than 84 000 students including people working in EY, McKinsey, Walmart, Booz Allen Hamilton, Adidas, Naspers, Alvarez & Marsal, PwC, Dell, Walgreens, Orange, and many others.

I teach through cases, so for every tool, technique, and framework I provide an example, preferably in Excel, that shows you how to apply the knowledge in practice. To most of the lectures, you will find attached (in additional resources) Excel files shown in the lecture, so as a part of this course you will also get a library of ready-made analyses that can, with certain modifications, be applied by you in your work. If you are already working in Management Consulting this course will give you an advantage over your colleagues and will help you get to make better choices in your life.

Why did I decide to create this course?

Management consulting has been very creative and has produced or popularized the application of many tools, techniques, and frameworks that can be used to improve not a business but also your private life. By putting those tools and techniques in one course and explaining them using real-life examples related to everyday life, I wanted to make this knowledge available to everybody that wants to make better decisions, especially students that are considering joining Management Consulting firms as well as managers that simply need to expand their toolbox with few useful tools.

Things you will find in this course will improve your awareness and skills in analyzing problems that you will be facing in in private life as well as in business. Thanks to this course, you will know what tools, techniques, or frameworks to use and how to use them in practice.

To sum it up, I believe that if you want to make better decisions, solve faster problems in your private life you should master the techniques presented in this course. That is why I highly recommend this course not only to consultants or business analyst that have to advise their customers but also to everybody that wants to make better decisions in his or her life.

In what way will you benefit from this course?

The course is a practical, step by step guide loaded with tones of analyses, tricks, hints that will significantly improve the speed and efficiency with which you solve problems and make decisions. There is little theory – mainly examples, a lot of tips from my own experience as well as other notable examples worth mentioning. Our intention is that thanks to the course you will learn:

  1. What management consulting tools, techniques, and frameworks are available

  2. How to use them in practice to solve problems and make better decisions

  3. How to make decisions and solve problems using available information/data

You can also ask me any question either through the discussion field or by messaging me directly in Udemy.

How the course is organized?

The course is divided into 4 sections and I will be adding new sections to address other important issues. Currently, you will find the following sections:

  • Introduction. We begin with a little intro into the course as well as some general info on production

  • Basic tools, techniques, and frameworks used by management consultants. In the second section, I will discuss the main tools that you can use to analyze and solve problems in real life. We will talk about things like: issue tree, bottom-up approach, top-down approach, backward reasoning, 80/20 rule, benchmarking, cost drivers, opportunity tree, and many, many more

  • Intermediate tools, techniques, and frameworks used by management consultants. In this section, I will discuss more advanced techniques such as: rankings, scenario analysis, representative element analysis, decision tree, OEE, OLE, the Theory of Constraints, Critical Chain, and many, many more

  • Advanced tools, techniques, and frameworks used by management consultants. In this section, I will discuss further more advanced techniques such as: simulation analysis, decomposition analysis, feasibility analysis, and sensitivity analysis

Solve Problems by Rising above Problems for New Perspective

5 Star Review

GREAT little course on how to overcome your fears, anxiety, stress, problems by using your imagination with self-hypnosis and/or EFT tapping.

Ivon Timmermans

Learn how you can easily change your perspective of old experiences that have clouded how you see the world and people in it. Because not everyone has the same life experiences that hold them back, but it is those past experiences that have created who you are today because of your perspective of them. The past becomes like a filter a lens you see everything through shaping every daily thought and experience.

Perhaps you have a irrational fear that others think is excessive or unusual ways of looking at experiences, people and relationships all shaped by emotional past experiences just like ghosts who haunt your thinking. I say ghosts because they are only memories of the past that is over and unless I am mistaken memories have no physical power only emotional and psychological  hold over you just as if your life is being held to ransom by ghosts of the past.

I am going to help teach you a unique technique that will allow you get a whole new perspective of what happened in the past by using a little imagination and creative thinking so that you can become a director of your past negative memories edit and change them to having your desired outcome and eliminate any ghosts in your past .

But before you start to use your imagination in this unique way and become a time traveler into your past I will first give you an exercise on visualizing because a lot of people don't realize that they visualize or how they visualize, Once you understand that you do and how you visualize you will be ready to take the next step and allow me to guide you into the past and change those negative memories to have a positive outcome and by doing this you will begin to notice changes in your everyday life.

Break Away – GMAT Problem Solving – 65 Solved And Explained

A zoom-in, zoom-out, connect-the-dots take on GMAT Problem Solving

Created by Loony Corn - An ex-Google, Stanford and Flipkart team


Students: 1431, Price: $89.99

Students: 1431, Price:  Paid

The Problem Solving questions on the GMAT are the easiest on the test - which puts the pressure on you, the test-taker, to nail them all.

  • The adaptive nature of the GMAT makes easy questions hard. Why this paradox? Because when you get an easy question, the pressure is on you to nail it - and nail it fast. If you miss on an easy question, the adaptive GMAT will relegate you pretty quickly to a lower tier score. And trust me, the pressure this puts on you can often lead you to get an easy question wrong. This is the paradox of the easy-but-hard questions on the GMAT.
  • Problem-solving questions, unlike data sufficiency questions, are very predictable indeed. So - don't fear them. Adopt a methodical, workmanlike approach to these questions, and you will get them right with a minimum of fuss. That's what this class will help you do.
  • Oh, and quick mathematical shortcuts are a big contributor to success on the GMAT. Use these shortcuts to solve questions in record time, or to confirm an answer you already arrived at using a more conventional technique. This course covers loads of such mathematical mnemonics.

What's covered

  • 65 high-quality problem-solving problems, original, and prepared to span the range of such questions on the GMAT
  • 5 hours of step-by-step reasoning, so you can learn to think like the test-setters
  • Visual highlights so that you really get why alternatives are right or wrong

The Top-Down Approach to Problem Solving

An effective approach to stop struggling with textbook problems and finally start learning.

Created by Eduardo Corpeño - Electrical & Computer Engineer


Students: 490, Price: $89.99

Students: 490, Price:  Paid

This method works! I’ve tested it for over 15 years of teaching Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Once the students get the hang of this method, their Physics, Math and other STEM classes become much, much less of a challenge, so they can concentrate on solid learning.

Why should you take this course?

Because when it comes to textbook problem solving, you probably were taught to do it backwards! You probably were wrongly taught to mimic your teachers. Answer these questions to see the problem:

  • Can you always produce the answer to the problems that are presented to you?

  • While solving a textbook problem on your own, have you gotten to the point where you don't know what to do next?

  • In class, have you found yourself asking “How did the teacher come up with that step?” or “How did the teacher know we had to use that equation?” or “How was I supposed to know that?” ?

Problem Solving and Decision Making in Fortune 500 Companies

Master problem solving and decision making best practices of Fortune 500 companies taught by globally-renowned expert

Students: 471, Price: Free

Students: 471, Price:  Free

Your problem solving and decision making will determine whether you thrive in our increasingly-disrupted future.

Yet traditional advice to "go with your gut" in problem solving and decision making so often leads to disasters, as revealed by research in behavioral economics, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience. So how do the leaders of Fortune 500 companies make the right calls on even the toughest decisions and strategies?

They recognize that behavioral science has revealed that our typical approach to problem solving and decision making suffers from systematic dangerous judgment errors called cognitive biases. These mental blindspots often lead us into decision and strategic disasters. Fortunately, recent scholarship has revealed effective yet counterintuitive strategies to enable you to defeat these cognitive biases. In this course, you will learn about and address these dangerous judgment errors, while mastering techniques for problem solving and decision making drawing on cutting-edge behavioral science and real-world best practices from Fortune 500 companies.

After taking this course, you will:

· Master the best practices in problem solving and decision making used by Fortune 500 firms to seize competitive advantage

· Feel truly confident about whether you made the right call in your decisions and strategy

· Free yourself of constant ruminations, numerous grey zones, and mental blindspots that plague typical problem solving and decision making

· Discover the dangerous judgment errors called cognitive biases that lead to strategic disasters & how Fortune 500 firms defeat them via science-based methods

· Develop a plan with specific next steps to adapt for yourself the methods used by Fortune 500 companies for problem solving and decision making

Sounds too good to be true? These methods were successfully used by Aflac, Applied Materials, Entergy, Honda, IBM, Reckitt, Wells Fargo, and Xerox to dramatically improve the skills of their top executives, senior VPs, middle managers, and lower-level supervisors in problem solving and decision making. Over the last two decades, I trained the leaders at these Fortune 500 companies, as well as at numerous middle-market companies and quickly-growing startups as the CEO of the boutique future-proofing consultancy Disaster Avoidance Experts. The secrets used by these companies will be revealed in this course.

Here’s a recent testimonial from John Elnitsky, the head of the nuclear division of Entergy, a company ranked #299 by Fortune, speaking about the impact of my training on the leaders of the nuclear industry:

· “We at Entergy hired Dr. Gleb as the opening keynote speaker to set the tone for the annual nuclear utility industry conference, hoping he would give a wake-up call about the threats and risks facing us and what steps we can take to prepare. Well, what he delivered exceeded our expectations. His keynote was the talk of the conference, widely described by attendees as giving the nuclear industry ‘the kick in the pants we needed to jump-start critically important initiatives to address the threats he outlined.’ Thank you Dr. Gleb!”

Here’s a recent testimonial from Harish Phadke, the Business Manager for the head of the North American Health division at Reckitt, a company ranked #326 by Fortune, about the impact of my training on the Reckitt North American Health Leadership Team:

· “Dr. Gleb Tsipursky provided a truly outstanding virtual training on unconscious bias and future-proofing via emotional and social intelligence for the Reckitt North American Health Leadership Team. Exceeding our expectations, Dr Gleb customized his groundbreaking, behavioral science-driven training content to integrate our initiatives, policies, and case studies at Reckitt, expertly targeting our evolving needs. We are delighted to have met Dr. Gleb, and look forward to future opportunities to keep working with him on a training series for the organization. I highly recommend him for anyone who wants to get a rapid grasp of highly relevant topics which influence human behavior in the prevailing challenging times.”

Besides such real-world, pragmatic expertise, I have a strong academic background as a behavioral scientist studying decision making, problem solving, and related fields. I spent 8 years at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, first getting a PhD in the History of Behavioral Science and then serving as a lecturer there. Then, I spent 7 years as a professor at the Ohio State University, where I published dozens of peer-reviewed articles on this topic in high-quality academic journals such as Behavior and Social Issues and Journal of Social and Political Psychology. Thus, this course is thoroughly informed by cutting-edge research.

This combination of business and science led to my expertise gaining global recognition. I published over 550 articles and gave over 450 interviews for prominent venues, such as Fortune, USA Today, CNBC, Fast Company, CBS News, Business Insider, Inc. Magazine, and Time.

My expertise is also featured in my 7 best-selling books, including global best-sellers Never Go With Your Gut: How Pioneering Leaders Make the Best Decisions and Avoid Business Disasters (Career Press, 2019) and The Blindspots Between Us: How to Overcome Unconscious Cognitive Bias and Build Better Relationships (New Harbinger, 2020). Further attesting to my global renown, my work was translated into Chinese, German, Russian, Korean, Polish, and other languages.

That's what you can expect in this course: methods used successfully at even the biggest companies to seize competitive advantage, thoroughly informed by cutting-edge research, and featured in top media venues and best-selling books around the globe. The course features 8 sections with videos, articles, and assignments from the course materials textbook packet, delivered in the following order:

1) Discover the structure of our minds and why typical advice on problem solving and decision making, such as "go with your gut," so often results in disasters, and how to use science-based methods and Fortune 500 best practices to get the best outcomes

2) Take the "Assessment on Dangerous Judgment Errors in the Workplace," to help you learn about which problem solving and decision making cognitive biases are most problematic for you and your team

3) Master a technique for problem solving in making quick and effective decisions on any choices where you just need a "good enough" answer

4) Master a technique for problem solving in making major decisions where you or your team wants the best answer possible, rather than settling for "good enough"

5) Master a technique for problem solving in making complex decisions with a number of different options that each have certain strengths and weaknesses

6) Master a technique for problem solving on how to avoid failures and maximize success when implementing major and/or complex decisions and strategies

7) Master a technique for problem solving on future-proofing your strategic decision making and strategic planning

8) Tying these all together, the last module will help you develop the mental habits necessary to notice and address cognitive biases and recognize when and how you should deploy all the techniques you've learned earlier

So why should you take my course rather than someone else’s cheaper Udemy course? Simply because this course provides unparalleled value. No one else on Udemy comes even close to my level of credibility in the course topic:
