MATLAB is a high-level language and interactive environment that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages such as C, C++, and Fortran.

CSE holds a paid license with the Office of Information Technology (OIT). Students, staff, and faculty may install Matlab on more than one computer or device as long as they are the only Matlab users of each device.  MATLAB may be installed to run standalone or online, and additionally for University-owned computers, as a concurrent license using a license server.

With the 2021 renewal ALL Matlab toolboxes are included. View available MATLAB Products.
