The campus MATLAB is in a grace period for license renewal through 3/30/20. Current users will see an intermittent expiration warning message whenever their individual license randomly validates. Mathworks has confirmed there is no way to remove the warnings. We apologize for any inconvenience.

MATLAB (matrix laboratory) is a multi-paradigm numerical computing environment. A proprietary programming language developed by MathWorks, MATLAB allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs written in other languages, including C, C++, C#, Java, Fortran and Python.

The University of Nevada, Reno has a campus-wide license for MATLAB, which can be installed on your personal computer or university-owned computer.  

Alternatively, MATLAB is also available to all University members on Remote Services.
