University Purchases Three-Year Site License for MATLAB Software

Stony Brook University purchased a three-year site license for MATLAB software, Simulink, and companion toolboxes from Mathworks. The new license agreement began Aug. 1, and covers installation of the software on University-owned computers (including classrooms and labs), as well as home use (one installation on a personal computer per person) for all instructors, students, staff, and researchers. Please visit the MATLAB software page for instructions on how to obtain the software. Users must create a Mathworks account and activate the software before downloading and installing it on their computers.

Stony Brook University purchased a three-year site license for MATLAB software, Simulink, and companion toolboxes from Mathworks. The new license agreement began Aug. 1, and covers installation of the software on University-owned computers (including classrooms and labs), as well as home use (one installation on a personal computer per person) for all instructors, students, staff, and researchers.

Please visit the MATLAB software page for instructions on how to obtain the software. Users must create a Mathworks account and activate the software before downloading and installing it on their computers.

Stony Brook University's campus license includes the following standard MATLAB toolboxes:

  • Bioinformatics Toolbox

  • Control System Toolbox

  • Curve Fitting Toolbox

  • Data Acquisition Toolbox

  • DSP System Toolbox

  • Image Processing Toolbox

  • Instrument Control Toolbox

  • MATLAB

  • Optimization Toolbox

  • Parallel Computing Toolbox

  • Signal Processing Toolbox

  • SimMechanics

  • SimScape

  • Simulink

  • Simulink Control Design

  • Stateflow

  • Statistics Toolbox

  • Symbolic Math Toolbox

Additional toolboxes may be purchased as child licenses of the MATLAB TAH license by contacting Debbi Cohen at Mathworks.  

As a service to the Stony Brook community, a MATLAB listserv has been established as a way for users of this software to ask each other questions, develop solutions, and share information. The list is open to all subscribers with @stonybrook.edu and @stonybrookmedicine.edu email addresses.

To subscribe to the list, send an email to listserv@lists.sunysb.edu with the following information in the body:

  • SUBSCRIBE matlab-l FirstName LastName (replace FirstName and LastName with your own full name)

Once you are subscribed to the list, you can post questions to the community by emailing matlab@lists.sunysb.edu

MATLAB will be visiting Stony Brook University in early October to give some presentations on its products and to answer questions from the community. A separate event invitation will be distributed once a date has been scheduled.

For questions about the license agreement and what it entitles you to, please contact DoIT's Research Technologies team at researchtech@stonybrook.edu. For assistance with technical questions related to downloading, installing, and configuring the software contact Client Support.
