Scilab Online Course

The Scilab course is an online course. It has 25 teaching hours to be finished in 5 weeks. At the end of the course an aptitude certificate will be issued to the students who pass the course.

The students receive manuals in pdf format, video-tutorials and solved exercises. An online platform is available 24 hours/7 days a week. The teacher has experience with Scilab.

The whole material (video-tutorials, exercises and texts) is available from the first day and there is no schedule. Video-tutorials are recorded. This enables each student to progress according to his learning pace.

The course structure is the following:
· 7 chapters about theory and solved exercises
· Obligatory exercises to pass the course
· Optional exercises to improve the level
Duration: 25 hours, ONLINE
Start date: March 8, 2024
Max time: 5 Weeks
Price: 200 €
Proposed for:

Engineers, technical engineers, graduates in physics, scientists, teachers, students, and anyone interested in learning high level programming and a tool oriented to solve numerical problems.


The aim of this course is obtain the necessary knowledge to solve numerical problems through Scilab capacities.

This course is oriented to anyone interested in Scilab software handling without previous knowledge.
