MATLAB information:

Programming assignments will be done using MATLAB, a program produced by MathWorks. You have the following options to acess MATLAB at Loyola:
  1. WORKSPACE: You can access MATLAB through Workspace from any Windows or MAC computer with internet access. Go to" and login using your Loyola username and password. You can also acess Workspace through the "Applications" tab on the Inside Loyola page. Once you login into Workspace, scroll down until you see the MATLAB icon
  2. I encourage you to use your network G:\ Drive to store your files. This is backed up regularly and accessible from any Loyola computer. If you are off campus, you can access your files via WORKSPACE. You can learn more about accessing your network driver from this Technology Services Link
  3. MATH-STAT computer lab (KH 318): The computers in KH 318 have MATLAB locally installed. You have card access to this lab.
  4. PURCHASE MATLAB: You can purchase a student version of MATLAB from Mathworks for $99. I highly recommend this option if you are considering going to graduate school or are interested in using MATLAB in the future.
  5. Do not hesitate to email me if you have any difficulties installing or running MATLAB.
