New computational tools are now available to university community members thanks to an expanded University of Maryland campus-wide license for MATLAB, Simulink, and companion toolboxes. The new MathWorks Total Academic Headcount (TAH) license covers on-campus and home installations for all members of our UMD community, as well as classroom and lab installations. The software may be run on computers connected to the UMD network, standalone laptops/workstations, and computers without Internet access. UMD members may download and install the products on their university as well as their personally-owned computers. The new TAH license also provides free, self-paced training and software support from MathWorks. Commercial use of MathWorks products is not covered under the university’s license.

This new three-year agreement is in place thanks to the collaborative effort and contributions of the Division of Information Technology, the A. James Clark School of Engineering, the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, and the College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences.
