MATLAB handles a range of computing tasks in engineering and science, from data acquisition and analysis to application development. The MATLAB environment integrates mathematical computing, visualization, and a powerful technical language. Built-in interfaces let you quickly access and import data from instruments, files, external databases and programs. In addition, MATLAB lets you integrate external routines written in C, C++, Fortran, and Java with your MATLAB applications.
Matlab is available on all Information Services cluster PCs. Matlab can be installed on PCs in your department (which must be on the campus network to access the licence) from 'Start - All Programs - Data Analysis'.
Matlab Student Version (consisting of the core module and few Toolboxes) can be bought from bookshops or via the Internet.
