I've used NumPy in a Signals and Systems class and in a Probability
Theory class. These were both Junior/Senior level undergraduate classes.
Students were given the option to use Python or MATLAB. Most chose
MATLAB because it was installed on the computers they had access to. It
is also the language used when other teachers teach the course.
NumPy/SciPy was a complete replacement for MATLAB however. I did all of
the labs using NumPy/SciPy and they worked fine.
