MATLAB (aka matrix laboratory) is a powerful numerical computing environment and programming language. It allows computation, visualization, and modeling as well as use of mathematical algorithms.

There are over 50 Matlab toolboxes included on the WPI machines and terminal servers. Contact ITS with questions or if a specific Toolbox does not appear to be available on the campus machines.
