Since 2018, SLU has signed a campus agreement for Matlab

General Software information

MATLAB is a high level language for technical calculations as well as interactive environment for algorithms development, data visualization, data analysis and numerical computation.
Using MATLAB, you can solve technical computing problems faster than with traditional programming languages like C, C ++, and Fortran. MATLAB has a variety of toolboxes that extend basic functionality. Through the Campus Agreement, SLU has access to all the relevant toolboxes.

Who can use Matlab

All SLU employees and students at SLU Campus in computer halls and on SLU: s computers. Employees on home computers and the students on their own computers.

Employees are allowed to use MATLAB as well as desired Toolboxes in Private Home Computer, either as a network license or as an independent license (recommended in this case).

Students at SLU can retrieve special installations from a special service at Mathworks. More information is available in the Student Portal.
