Drexel centrally licenses MATLAB for the entire campus, including a selection of widely used toolboxes. Installation on University-owned computers is managed via Software Center for Windows and via Self-Service on MacOS.

Access via Lab Computers

MATLAB is installed on all Engineering lab computers by default.

Installing on personal computers

MATLAB can also be installed on personal computers by following the instructions provided by MathWorks. This method uses a MathWorks account to apply licensing and does not require connecting to Drexel's network to run the software. University-owned laptops that are routinely used off-campus may also use this method.
