Object Oriented Programming using Matlab (OOP):


Object Oriented Programming using Matlab (OOP), uses of classes (class), objects (obj) and data structure (struct) .. if you would like to use this approach in programming for this course, this will be great.
This is optional, but it is always good to learn latest advanced programming tools.
