As in previous editions, new students of the Master in Actuarial and Financial Sciences have been able to complete a zero programming course (matlab).
Professor Pedro José Serrano (Deputy Director of the Master) has been in charge of teaching the classes. The course is completely free and is aimed at all students who begin the master's degree, in particular, those who, due to their studies, have not had the opportunity to use this very useful tool when dealing with actuarial work.
Matlab is a programming language and a numerical computing environment that uses vectors and matrices as its basic data types. Among other things, Matlab allows easy matrix manipulation and plotting of data and functions in two and three dimensions.
