MATLAB Licensing for Campus-Wide Use

What is MATLAB?

MATLAB is one of the top 10 programming languages and is used at 5000 universities around the world for teaching, research, and project-based learning.

7 reasons to use MATLAB for engineering and science


A Campus License Becomes a Competitive Advantage

Hundreds of universities have upgraded their MATLAB access to a Total Academic Headcount license. This includes 24 of the 25 top-ranked technical universities and 76 of the top 100.

"We can engage students in leading-edge research. The tools enable the research group and the student—including biology majors and engineers—to focus on research and spend less time programming."

Dr. Gil Alterovitz, MIT and Harvard University

Connect Everyone for Interdisciplinary Projects

Campus-wide access to MATLAB provides a common platform for teaching, research, and student projects across all fields of engineering, physical and social sciences, and finance.

"Our students can do both modeling and analysis, and then develop an embedded controller without switching software platforms. That is invaluable."

Dr. Joel Anstrom, Penn State University

Prepare Students for Career Success

By programming in MATLAB and designing embedded systems in Simulink, students gain practical experience and skills that are highly valued in industry. It's the LinkedIn skill most frequently listed by grads at MIT and other top technical schools.

"If you want to work at Google, make sure you can use MATLAB."

Jonathan Rosenberg, Google

Build a Scalable Computing Infrastructure

With a MATLAB Total Academic Headcount license, everyone at the institution has access to the same set of software tools — even when off-network or joining remote learning courses.

"Students have the flexibility of working where and when they choose in addition to lowering the demand and cost of supporting public labs."

Dean Mark Kushner and Chris McCoy, Iowa State University
