With the new agreement, York University joins more than 800 schools worldwide already using the MathWorks Total Academic Headcount (TAH) campus-wide licence. The University’s adoption of MATLAB and Simulink for technical computing and model-based design demonstrates the institution’s commitment to continuously enhancing the learning environment for its students, educators and researchers by providing anywhere access to a set of cohesive industry-standard tools, says the University’s Chief Information Officer, Donald Ipperciel.

“The MathWorks’ TAH campus-wide licence allows York University to manage and distribute MATLAB, as well as any updates and fixes, through one central location” says Ipperciel. “By giving students, faculty and researchers a set of industry-standard tools to use, the University is further supporting and enhancing their educational and learning environment while preparing students for their future careers.”

York University’s MATLAB and Simulink campus-wide TAH licence includes analysis, design, modelling, simulation, code generation and testing products for the engineering and science schools, plus computational finance for the business and economic schools. York University is deploying these tools to students, educators and researchers through a centralized licence that increases the administrative efficiency of software management and distribution and ensures that a common set of tools is readily available for all users.

Users will have access to software and associated documentation as well as immediate access to new releases. The TAH licence permits the installation of MATLAB and Simulink on campus-managed and user-owned computers.
