A programming language that expresses matrix & array mathematics directly
Making calculations is at the heart of every science. MATLAB is a programming language to implement mathematical concepts that frequently appear in science and engineering.
MATLAB combines a desktop environment tuned for iterative analysis and design processes with a programming language that expresses matrix and array mathematics directly. It is particularly popular among engineers but it is very similar in its principles to other scientific programming languages, such as R, commonly used by statisticians, biologists and other scientists.
You can use MATLAB through the University's VDI (Virtual Desktop Interface), go to our Remote Access resource to find out more about using the VDI.
There are a wealth of helpful tutorials, training courses and different ways to access the software which you can find in the Links section on this page.
