MATLAB is a high-level language and interactive computing environment that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages such as C, C++, and Fortran.
You can download the latest MATLAB software directly from the Mathworks website at:
Please note that you will need to log into an existing MathWorks account associated with your USC NetID email address or create a new Mathworks account associated with your USC email in order to download software from the MathWorks site.
You can also access MATLAB training, MATLAB help, and MATLAB Cloud and Resources for Educators from that site.
For instructions on installing this software, please see the Installation for End Users page on the MathWorks website.
NOTE: You will need to reactivate your MATLAB software license every year on January 31. Please see the Reactivating Your MATLAB License page on the ITS website for instructions on how to reactivate your software license.
For additional information on MATLAB, including installation instructions and the products and toolboxes included in your MATLAB download, see the MATLAB Answers website.
