Using MATLAB with Python



HPC.NRW and MathWorks cordially invite you to this hands-on workshop about Interoperability of MATLAB and Python.

Do you need to use MATLAB and Python together? MATLAB provides flexible, two-way integration with many programming languages, including Python. 

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn how to use Python from MATLAB and MATLAB from Python, with practical examples. Participants will be able to benefit from the strengths of two of the most powerful tech computing environments. The whole is more than the sum of its parts.

Time and Place

The course will take place on Thursday, June 22, 2023, from 02:00 AM to 05:00 PM. It will be held online via Zoom. The login credentials will be e-mailed to participants prior to the event.


  • Call Python libraries
  • Call user-defined Python commands, scripts, and modules
  • Manage and convert data
  • Package MATLAB algorithms to be called from Python


The registration is open to members of universities and other academic institutions in North Rhine-Westphalia. The course is free for both students and employees.

We will admit 50 people. Upon registering you will be put on a waiting list. You will be notified on May 12, 2023 whether you were accepted.

If there are more than 50 registrations, we will randomly select the participants. Everybody else will be put on a waiting list. If somebody cancels, we will offer the place to the first person on the waiting list.


This course is the third in a series of four courses that are held in the summer semester 2023 and encompass the following topics:

  • Introduction to Parallel Computing with MATLAB (module 1)
  • Basics of Research Software Development (module 2)
  • Using MATLAB with Python (module 3)
  • Deep Learning with MATLAB, Flipped Classroom (module 4)


As we will be using MATLAB Online (MATLAB in a browser), a MATLAB installation on your desktop is not required.

Working knowledge of MATLAB of MATLAB is recommended. Check out the available self-paced online training courses on MATLAB Academy, e.g.
