Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Justin, and welcome to my course, Performing Feature Engineering with MATLAB. I am a mechatronics engineer, and I'm currently an engineering professor at Sheridan College. Prior to this, I have many years of engineering and consulting experience across numerous industries. This course is an intermediate‑level course for learning the fundamentals of feature engineering with MATLAB, so some prior knowledge of MATLAB or data science might be beneficial. Some of the major topics that we will cover include introducing and understanding feature engineering, organizing and cleaning data with MATLAB, preprocessing data with MATLAB, and extracting features for analysis. By the end of this course, you will be proficient in the fundamental techniques required to work with MATLAB on feature engineering and data science problems. From here, continue your learning by diving into MATLAB and data science with courses on MATLAB Fundamentals, Getting Started with Machine Learning using MATLAB, and Building your First Data Analysis Workflow with MATLAB. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn MATLAB fundamentals for feature engineering and data science with the Performing Feature Engineering with MATLAB course, at Pluralsight.
