Need access to MATLAB, but not taking a course that requires it? SEASnet has Octave installed on all lab machines. Octave is an open source alternative to MATLAB and is made available to anyone with a SEASnet login.
SEASnet also offers an annual subscription to MATLAB for research purposes (note: you must have a machine on the School’s network in order to request a license). Detailed information can be found here.
Finally, the UCLA student store offers a student version of MATLAB for purchase.
