MATLAB is a high-performance language for technical computing. It integrates computation, visualization, and programming in an easy-to-use environment where problems and solutions are expressed in familiar mathematical notation.

University of California San Diego has a Total Academic Headcount (TAH) license for MATLAB, Simulink, and add-on products.

Faculty and Staff can access the MATLAB installation by visiting this link: https://matlab.ucsd.edu/campus.html.

Students can access the MATLAB installation by visiting this link: https://matlab.ucsd.edu/student.html.  Matlab is also available at many campus computer labs. Use the Specialty Software lookup to find MATLAB locations and hours of access.  UC San Diego's virtual computing lab, GoVirtual.ucsd.edu, also includes MATLAB and can be accessed from any computer on a campus connection.
