Brock University has signed an agreement with MathWorks, a U.S.-based developer of mathematical computing software for engineers and scientists. The agreement enables Brock students, faculty and researchers to download and install MATLAB, Simulink and additional products on and off campus using any device.
These products are designed to support research and course work.
MATLAB is a high-performance technical computing environment that combines comprehensive math and graphics functions with a powerful high-level language. Simulink is a product for simulating nonlinear dynamic systems.
The company also develops and markets an extensive set of add-on products for specialized application areas including control design, signal processing and communications, image processing, test and measurement, computational biology, and financial modeling and analysis.
Everyone has access to MathWorks learning resources, including self-paced, online training to quickly develop their MATLAB and Simulink skills. These are tools to assist researchers in their work.
Brock joins more than 1,500 universities worldwide already using the Campus-Wide License.
Brock University’s Campus-Wide License includes analysis, design, modeling, simulation, code generation and testing products for the engineering and science schools, plus computational finance for the business and economic schools.
The University is deploying these tools via a centralized license that increases the administrative efficiency of software management and distribution and ensures that a common set of tools is readily available for all students, educators and researchers.
Through the agreement between Brock and MathWorks, users will have access to software and associated documentation as well as immediate access to new releases. The Campus-Wide License permits the installation of MATLAB and Simulink on campus-managed and user-owned computers.
