MATLAB – The Language of Technical Computing

MATLAB is a programming environment and a matrix-based language, founded, developed and designed by the American Company, The MathWorks Inc. in 1984. The MATLAB platform is optimized for solving engineering and scientific problems.

MATLAB combines a desktop environment tuned for iterative analysis and design processes with a programming language that expresses matrix and array mathematics directly. Built-in graphics make it easy to visualize and gain insights from data. MATLAB code can be integrated with other languages, enabling you to deploy algorithms and applications within web, enterprise, and production systems.

It is used for machine learning, signal processing, image processing, computer vision, communications, computational finance, control design, robotics, and much more.

Key Features

  • High-level language for scientific and engineering computing​

Engineers and Scientists Trust MATLAB


Use MATLAB toolboxes that are professionally developed, rigorously tested, and fully documented.


Build Apps and see how different algorithms work with your data. Iterate until you’ve got the results you want, then automatically generate a MATLAB program to reproduce or automate your work.


Scale your analyses to run on clusters, GPUs, and clouds with only minor code changes. There’s no need to rewrite your code or learn big data programming and out-of-memory techniques.

On the way from Research to Production with MATLAB

MATLAB code is production ready, so you can go directly to your cloud and enterprise systems, and integrate with data sources and business systems.

Automatically convert MATLAB algorithms to C/C++, HDL, and CUDA code to run on your embedded processor or FPGA/ASIC.

MATLAB works with Simulink to support Model-Based Design, which is used for multidomain simulation, automatic code generation, and test and verification of embedded systems.
