MATLAB® is a high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java™.
The University has acquired a Total Academic Headcount (TAH) MATLAB license that vastly improves access to this critical software suite. It includes unlimited seats of all currently licensed products and adds eight (8) additional products.
Individual academic users paid by UT Dallas (including Faculty, Academic or Research Staff, PhD candidates, TAs, and RAs) can install a standalone copy on non-networked systems, laptops, and home systems. Administrative staff are not eligible for stand-alone installs.
In order to use a standalone license, also known as "Designated Computer Activation," you must set up a Mathworks Account using your firstname.lastname@example.org email address and send a notification to email@example.com
TAH license administrators will associate your account with the university’s license. Once your account is associated with the license you will be able to activate your software upon installation.
Mathworks accounts can be set up at http://www.mathworks.com/accesslogin/createProfile.do
Network licenses should be used for fixed-location networked on-campus computers as is current practice, such as for computer labs. This allows the license to be centrally managed.
Students other than PhD candidates, TAs, or RAs are not eligible for standalone licenses. However, they can buy a student version for use on personal computers from the UTD Tech Store.
The student version is not as robust as the full program available on UT Dallas owned computers, and therefore does not have all of the same features. It does include many of the essential tools found in the full version.
For more information on the student version, follow this link to the UTD Technology Store, login with your NetID and password, and search for the MATLAB software.
We have licensed the following toolboxes as part of the MATLAB agreement.
The mix of toolboxes can be changed yearly except for these first sixteen; these are fixed.
The following toolboxes are currently available. This list is re-evaluated annually. Every Summer the list is reviewed and a collection of toolboxes are selected for the following year. The license is renewed every August 1. If you would like to suggest a toolbox, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
