MatLab tutorials are available directly from the Mathworks website itself. Although the full tutorial set can be purchased, most of the basic tutorials for MatLab and Simulink are available freely for students and faculty (Academic use only) with a registered account on their website.  Particularly beneficial are the MatLab and Simulink tutorials totaling around two hours each. However other tutorials include Signal Processing, Control Systems and Computational Mathematics. Likewise if visual learning is preferred, Mathworks also has their own YouTube channel which contains videos on MatLab, Simulink as well as modeling, and graphing with this software.

There is also a crash course for MatLab from a North Carolina State University Professor, which gives a general introduction on MatLab showing how to enter data, program with MatLab and solve mathematical problems.  With regards to engineering, the University of Michigan provides numerous control tutorials. Rutgers also provides online PowerPoint slides and videos as an introduction to both MatLab and Psychtoolbox, which is a collection of MatLab/GNU/Octave functions used for vision research.
