Mathworks Matlab software

Mathworks Matlab software

IT Services are pleased to announce that after lengthy negotiations, an agreement has been reached to purchase a site license for Mathworks Matlab software. This brings the following immediate benefits:

  • The software is available for student installs (instructions via LEARN)
  • The removal of the need to register university machines against the license server
  • The removal of charging for the use of Matlab
  • Access via license server to the complete set of toolboxes

There is clearly work to do in putting together all of the requirements to take this forward, however, over time, we will be looking at:

  • How we provide cross-platform access for installation
  • Documenting staff installs onto their own machines
  • Documenting how network disconnected access can be provided
  • Looking at the feasibility of installation onto the HPC
