MATLAB software will be free for all students for Fall 2015 semester

Students will be able to use MATLAB and Simulink software free of charge starting in the fall 2015 semester.

MATLAB is a high-level language and interactive environment used by millions of engineers and scientists worldwide. It lets students explore and visualize ideas and collaborate across disciplines including signal and image processing, communications, control systems, and computational finance. This software is required for a number of courses and costs students $99 per license.

ITS has been working on simplifying the current software licensing model used at WVU, and with support from Statler College, we are now able to provide MATLAB to students for the fall semester. Please share this change with faculty members teaching courses that requireMATLAB and ask students to access MATLAB through SLIC.wvu.edu.
