Below is an overview and directions for NDSU students, faculty and staff to obtain MATLAB/Simulink on their personal computers.


MATLAB software is used for numerical computation, visualization and programming. It lets users explore and visualize ideas and collaborate across disciplines including signal and image processing, communications, control systems and computational finance. Simulink is a block diagram environment for multi-domain simulation and model-based design. It supports simulation, automatic code generation and continuous test and verification of embedded systems. It is integrated with MATLAB®, enabling you to incorporate MATLAB algorithms into models and export simulation results to MATLAB for further analysis.
