I am using TeXstudio with its default settings. My figure is saved as PDF because I was unable to include *.eps because of the Unknown graphics extension: .eps-error. The figure opens without faults in Adobe Illustrator, however when I use \includegraphics{*.pdf }, the pi symbol on one of the axes of the figure is converted to the unequal symbol.

That looks pathetic!

How do I proceed to be able to include my figure correctly?

I cannot find anythign wrong with the file. Perhaps you can? It views fine in my other software. As requested: here is the file "skudd.pdf": http://www.kingoslo.com/temp/skudd.pdf

Welcome to TeX.sx!](Welcome to TeX.SX!) Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Martin Schröder Feb 23 '13 at 23:34
Welcome to TeX.sx! Usually, we don't put a greeting or a "thank you" in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting answers is the preferred way here to say "thank you" to users who helped you. – Martin Schröder Feb 23 '13 at 23:34
To be able to compile your MWE you should provide a link to the file skudd.pdf, which in addition looks as the main suspect in your problem. – JLDiaz Feb 24 '13 at 0:10

I agree with JLDiaz - the file skudd.pdf is probably at fault, most probably because a font is not included in the file, or the font encoding is broken or not included. If it views OK in a pdf previewer, try printing-to-pdf from that, or use some other method to do a pdf-ps-pdf round-trip. ... and good luck with the first assignment. (Hopefully the exercise wasn't solely to fix a broken pdf inclusion.)

Font isn't embedded when exporting from matlab. You are right.M – Marius Jonsson Feb 24 '13 at 13:36
