MATLAB and Simulink
These applications find use in engineering and science, business and economics, and computational finance, amongst others.
MATLAB (the language of technical computing) is a programming environment for algorithm development, data analysis, visualization, and numeric computation.
Simulink is a graphical environment for simulation and Model-Based Design of multi-domain dynamic and embedded systems.
For instructions on downloading the software, as well as other resources, go to Maastricht University’s Matlab portal.
To install and activate MATLAB on your device select “Sign in to get started” and proceed with the required steps using your university email address.
For detailed instructions to make use of the license, you can click on the link “Need Installation Help?” (PDF).
For detailed instructions to create your account, watch this video.
Under the section “Learn to Use MATLAB and Simulink”, the portal also provides access to a wide range of interactive online courses and tutorials on MATLAB, Simulink, deep learning, machine learning, computational math, and more.
At the end of each course, you can download and print a certificate of completion.
Additional MATLAB resources
- MATLAB Online: run MATLAB and Simulink on a web browser (ideal back-up solution in case you do not have with you your laptop with MATLAB installed on). Important: do not use this feature in combination with privacy-sensitive information.
- MATLAB Grader: create an interactive class with MATLAB-based problems. This might become available in Canvas.
- MATLAB Courseware: downloadable Course Materials Created by Educators from several universities.
- Find all about the MATLAB options and support on the Mathworks page.
