Students, faculty and staff universitywide are invited to begin using two new computing resources launched today — MATLAB, a product that provides technical computing, and Simulink, a model-based design.

For instructions and how to access the programs, visit the Information Technology Services website.

Joining schools worldwide, WSU’s adoption of MATLAB and Simulink demonstrates the university’s commitment to continuous support of exceptional research and transformational student experience. The programs offer anywhere access to analysis, design, modeling, simulation, code generation and testing resources for engineering and science applications, plus computational finance for business and economic needs.

Through this new usage agreement, all WSU faculty, staff and students on all campuses now have access to software and associated documentation, as well as immediate access to new releases. The license permits the installation of MATLAB and Simulink on both university-managed and user-owned computers.

“This universitywide license allows WSU to manage and distribute MATLAB, as well as any updates and fixes, through one central location,” said Sasi Pillay, vice president of ITS and chief information officer. “By giving students, staff and faculty researchers these tools, the university is both supporting educational and learning experiences, while preparing students for their future careers.”

“Thanks to deans and chancellors across WSU for collaborating on this project and providing the funding which made it possible for all WSU community members to access this software.”
