My background is in FORTRAN and I sort of self taught myself Matlab.
I think Matlab is such a higher level language than any experience in
programming will help. i.e. Programming in matlab is easier than
programming in FORTRAN or C++. I find that my experience in FORTRAN
programming allows me to make well organized programs in Matlab.
Not sure if that helps, but that has been my experience. So, in short I
would think any basic programming course would help, but then you would
just need to learn matlab syntax on your own.

Subject: [SPM] Computer Science Course Recommendation in Lieu of Matlab?
I had a student ask me the other day what computer science course he
should sign up for in order to be better able to program in Matlab. We
don't offer any specific computer science or engineering classes that
feature matlab, so he'll have to choose something else that could be
applied. My first guess would be good ol' fashion C, but I don't think
that is even taught anymore. Must intro computer science classes teach
Java these days, but that seems quite different than matlab.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated (this is for an
undergraduate at an American University).
