Matlab for TU Dublin

How to access and install MATLAB

MATLAB is a programming environment for algorithm development, data analysis, visualization, and numeric computation, while Simulink is a graphical environment for simulation and model-based design of multi-domain dynamic and embedded systems. Both applications, along with a number of add-on products for specific tasks such as data analysis and image processing, are available to students and staff for learning, teaching, and research purposes.

The application can be accessed using your or email address.

Transitioning Existing MATLAB Installations to Campus-Wide License

If someone already has MATLAB installed, they can transition to the Campus-Wide License

  • End Users who associate to the new licence simply need to re-run the MATLAB installer
  • When running the installer, they simply will select the Campus-Wide Licence and install the new toolboxes that are now available.After the install,it will automatically bring them into the activation client and place down the Campus-Wide Licence file.
