Course Overview

The online certification program on Basic Linear Algebra by Swayam is formulated as a basic session for interested students who wish to pursue higher academic knowledge in the field of engineering studies. The candidates who want to pursue a higher education qualification in the field of mathematics can also register for the Basic Linear Algebra training.  

The students in the Basic Linear Algebra certification syllabus will cover all the primary and basic tools that are used in the domain of “basic linear algebra”. The online session for a period of twelve weeks will be covering the topics namely- gram-Schmidt process, inner product spaces, rank-nullity, linear transformations, determinants, invertibility,  rank, diagonalization,  similarity, and applications. After completing the course, the Basic Linear Algebra certification benefits the students by clearing their doubts in the- Rn, rank of a matrix, linear independence, and subspaces. Students after completing the course the students will get to practice real-world cases.
