How to Become a Freelance MATLAB Expert

A proprietary, multiparadigm computer programming language, MATLAB (short for matrix laboratory) was developed by mathematical computing software company MathWorks. MATLAB facilitates plotting of functions and data, matrix manipulations, the creation of user interfaces, and much more for the purposes of analyzing data and creating models and applications. If you have an engineering background and an interest in deep learning and machine learning, you may have what it takes to become a MATLAB expert on Upwork.

What does a freelance MATLAB expert do?

A freelance MATLAB expert is typically an engineer or scientist who uses the language to develop a wide range of applications for business and academia. Development can include applications for deep learning and machine learning, image and video processing, testing and measurement, control systems, signal processing and communications, computational biology, and computational finance.

MATLAB experts can often be found in the field of communications technology, working on projects related to satellite communications, as well as education, where they teach students the art of leveraging MATLAB in a variety of commercial and noncommercial areas.

What skills do I need to become a freelance MATLAB expert?

There are a number of skills MATLAB experts possess, positioning them as sought-after technical professionals in numerous industries. While no two client projects are exactly the same, there are a number of common skills a freelance MATLAB expert can offer clients to ensure success.

Common skills a freelance MATLAB expert should possess include:

  • An understanding of basic object-oriented programming. MATLAB experts should understand the basic concepts of objects within a programming paradigm.
  • Familiarity with built-in tools provided by MATLAB IDE. MATLAB experts should have a high familiarity with MATLAB IDE (integrated development environment). This includes an understanding of MATLAB Desktop (containing four subwindows), used to display graphics; MATLAB Editor, used to create, view, and edit M-Files and the Help System, which includes various search and display options.

What are the core freelance MATLAB expert job responsibilities?

Clients ask their freelance MATLAB experts to handle a number of duties during the course of their engagement. While clients and projects may differ, most require their MATLAB expert to handle the following core responsibilities:

  • Identify and resolve organizational business problems using the MATLAB approach
  • Create advanced mathematical models of organizational systems
  • Using the MATLAB approach, define analysis results into actionable goals and objectives
  • Collaborate with the team to develop a MATLAB knowledge base for the organization
  • Communicate regularly with senior executives and stakeholders throughout the organization and share updates as needed

Should I get a degree or certification to become a freelance MATLAB expert?

In addition to developing your skills and gaining professional experience, obtaining a degree and/or professional certification can help your Upwork profile stand out. Examples of popular degrees or certifications that are helpful for MATLAB experts include:

  • A bachelor’s or master’s degree in computer science, computer programming, mathematics, engineering, or an equivalent field of study from an accredited college or university
  • Certified MATLAB Associate, Certified MATLAB Professional— offered by MathWorks
