MATLAB is produced by MathWorks, the leading developer of mathematical computing software for engineers and scientists.

Imperial College London deploys these tools to students, educators and researchers via a centralised license to both increase the administrative efficiency of software management and distribution and ensure that a common set of tools is readily available to all users. 

The campus-wide MathWorks TAH license includes analysis, design, modelling, simulation, testing and code generation products for the engineering and science schools, plus computational finance products for the business and economic schools.

ICT has renewed and upgraded the license to cover the full suite of MATLAB products:

The agreement gives you access to software and associated documentation as well as immediate access to new releases. The TAH license permits the installation of software on campus-managed and user-owned computers.


Update your MathWorks licence

If you are an existing MATLAB user and you want to continue accessing the software, you will need to update your license file:

  • Go to the MATLAB website 
  • Click ‘Get started now’ to log in into your MathWorks Account. From there you can update the file. 

Alternatively, you can choose one of these options:

Update the License File in MATLAB (internet connection required):
Go to Help > Licensing > Update Current Licenses

Update the License File in the License Centre:

  1. Access the MathWorks License Centre (login required)
  2. Select TAH license #600177
  3. Click on the Activation and Installation tab below 
  4. Click on the Activation Label for the activation you wish to validate 
  5. Click on the Get License File button. Select to either email or download the license file
  6. Once downloaded, open MATLAB and go to Help > Licensing > Activate Software 
  7. Select to Activate without using the internet 
  8. Browse to a copy of the newest license file saved. MATLAB should now run without displaying the ‘due to expire’ message
