MATLAB is a software platform used by universities around the world. The UAB has now acquired a license which will allow the whole university community to use it on both university and personal devices. The knowledge it offers is highly valued at professional level.


The UAB has acquired a MATLAB license for all of its university community members to use the software products made available by this platform, without limitations. It includes more than one hundred specialised academic and research tools, and can be used on computers both on campus and at home.

MATLAB (the abbreviation of matrix laboratory) is one of the top programming languages and is used by a number of universities around the world. It has grown throughout the years as a programming environment for data analysis, algorithm development, visualisation and numerical computing. It is developed by the company MathWorks, specialised in mathematical software for scientists and engineers, and has become a highly outstanding tool within the field of artificial intelligence.

The campus license is available to teaching and research staff as well as students. Its software can be installed in both university computers and in personal devices. In addition, through the use of this platform, students will acquire experience and skills highly valued in fields such as aerospace, robotics, medicine, technologies applied to education, etc.
