Installation of Matlab

CAE no longer provides MATLAB for download. This service has been taken over by DoIT through the campus software library.

In the past, CAE has offered MATLAB for download on UW owned computers to the faculty and staff of the College of Engineering. CAE still maintains a license for its computer labs and a few other instances. If you need MATLAB installed on a departmental computer, the IT staff for that department should be able to assist you. MATLAB is still available remotely through XenApp at
