Matlab for Students

College students can purchase the student version of MATLAB for a reduced price. It is important to note this is for personal computers only. Due to licensing restrictions, this version may not be installed on PSU owned hardware.
Here is the link to the software page.

Note this software is not free and must be purchased through the MATLAB website

Note: TheCAT does not provide Media or Support for the Student version of the software. For help with downloading, installation and support, please see the MATLAB help page.

If you are interested in remote access to MATLAB, it is installed on most Linux systems and the Terminal Server.

Matlab for Faculty

PSU maintains a series of floating/concurrent licenses for Matlab and various toolboxes. These are the same licenses being used by Matlab users on CAT supported workstations (Windows and Linux). If you are an MCECS Faculty Member and managing a Tier 3 computer, you can get instructions on how to get the Matlab software and point it at the license server by visiting the MCECS Intranet:
