MATLAB

Currently, three different MATLAB environments are available on computers managed by College of Engineering Computing Services:

  • the K-State license
  • the MNE license (Mechanical & Nuclear Engineering)
  • the ECE license (Electrical & Computer Engineering)

The environments differ in the specific MATLAB toolboxes available, and the people who have access to the licenses.

The K-State license is available to everyone.  It is a full research license. This license is available on our Presentation Systems, the Engineering Labs and Fiedler Library. There are only 15 concurrent seats available, and 5 seats of Simulink.  Licenses are shared across all of K-State on a first-come, first-served basis, so there are no guarantees that a license will be available at any given time.

The MNE license is available only to MNE students and employees. To have access to this license server, the user must be logged into the system. On the Presentation Systems, this means using the ENGG Logon shortcut on the desktop and logging in. Please remember to log off or restart the computer when you are done using it. This license is to be used only for teaching, no research use is allowed.

The ECE license is available only to ECE students and employees. To have access to this license server, the user must be logged into the system. On the Presentation Systems, this means using the ENGG Logon shortcut on the desktop and logging in. Please remember to log off or restart the computer when you are done using it. This license is to be used only for teaching, no research use is allowed.

The shortcuts for MATLAB are all located on the Start Menu -> Programs -> Engg Apps. They are all labeled MATLAB <version> - University/ECE/MNE license. Each summer we upgrade MATLAB to the current release. We stay on this version for the entire academic year, as its not possible to upgrade MATLAB without re-imaging our labs.
