MATLAB is a high-level technical computing language and interactive environment for algorithm development, data visualization, data analysis, and numeric computation. You can use MATLAB in a wide range of applications, including signal and image processing, communications, control design, test and measurement, financial modeling and analysis and computational biology. Add-on toolboxes extend the MATLAB environment to solve particular classes of problems in these application areas.
Columbia University Total Academic Headcount (TAH) MATLAB Agreement
CUIT is pleased to announce that as of July 2010 MATLAB is available for download under Columbia’s Campus-Wide Licensing Agreement with MathWorks. MATLAB is generally available to Columbia University faculty, staff and students. Under licensing rules, MATLAB may be installed on any computer connected to the University network, or on a personal machine as a standalone installation.
The Campus License provides MATLAB and 24 add-on tools for academic research and curriculum development. Faculty and academic staff may install and use the Campus License on their personally owned computers on and off campus as well as in computing labs. The Student License provides MATLAB and 15 add-on tools for students only to install on their machines for coursework.
Please note that CUIT has opted to include additional tools on the Campus License in an effort to enhance academic research and curriculum development for faculty and academic staff.

MATLAB has been licensed for use in research purposes by research staff and faculty whose departments or schools formally contribute to its costs. Staff and faculty can download and use MATLAB only if your school or department participates in the University's contract with Mathworks and has designated a departmental liaison.
Departments and schools that participate in the MATLAB contract designate a MATLAB departmental liaison to act as a single point of contact for everyone within their organization. Departmental liaisons provide all technical, installation and usage support to their fellow departmental affiliates. Please speak with your departmental liaison for assistance with downloading MATLAB.
If you don't see your school or department on the MATLAB liaison list, your organization does not participate in the contract. Please ask your departmental administrator, immediate supervisor or department head to contact CUIT at email@example.com for more information on having your department included under the MATLAB license agreement.
Faculty, academic staff and students may purchase and maintain additional modules (i.e. toolboxes) for use with the Campus and Student options. For more information on how to add or maintain software for use with your license, please contact Angelo D’Amato from the MathWorks directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or (508) 647-7516.
Departmental MATLAB liaisons are the persons designated in your department as being your first contact with all issues or questions pertaining to MATLAB. Departmental liaisons can download installers and updates, and contact MathWorks Support directly to report problems or ask questions.
Should an issue arise where the liaison is having problems getting the help they need from MathWorks, CUIT will work with liaisons to communicate with MathWorks.
Liaisons: please email email@example.com with details; identify yourself as a liaison and a CUIT specialist will follow up with you.
Liaisons must first create a MathWorks account before they can login to the Download Section of the MathWorks website.
Departmental liaisons are responsible for MATLAB installation and support, as well as understanding hardware/OS requirements. System requirements and technical support are available through the MathWorks Support web site.
License Validity Dates
Licenses are valid for a 1-year period: July 1 through June 30. Software will not run after the license expires.
Documentation can be downloaded directly from MathWorks. Guides and other reference materials can also be purchased separately through third parties.
