MATLAB Licensing & Toolboxes
MATLAB from MathWorks is a versatile platform and programming language for solving engineering and scientific problems with built-in graphics capabilities to visualize and gain insights from data and a large library of prebuilt toolboxes and algorithms for a variety of domains. It is used for machine learning, signal processing, image processing, computer vision, communications, computational finance, control design, robotics, and more.
For a detailed description of MATLAB, see the MathWorks website: https://www.mathworks.com/products/matlab.html
Preferred method: Use MATLAB online at:
You need to create a mathworks.com account using your purdue.edu email address to access it. This license may be used for both classwork as well as academic research.
Go to the link above, set up a Mathworks account with your @purdue.edu email, and download and install the software.
If you have already installed the temporary license, update your license by going to "Help -> Licensing -> Update Current Licenses" A full install requires about 30 GB of disk space.
A complete list of toolboxes are described at the MathWorks website: https://www.mathworks.com/products.html - All toolboxes are included with the current license.
The specific toolboxes available varies between MATLAB versions. You can get a list of installed toolboxes by running the "ver" command in MATLAB (at the >> prompt.)
