General Computing

We provide support for

Matlab is a package for scientific and engineering computation that is heavily used in teaching (both formal and informal) and research.

We run the newest versions of the above software, bringing in new programmes wherever appropriate. We also maintain a wide range of freely available software and utilities.

As well as providing a platform for course-related software, the Teaching System is used heavily by the research community outside term time, so many research-orientated programs are installed too. The system has been designed so that research systems are easily accessible (in particular for 4th year students). This all means that the undergraduates have the option of using the same tools as researchers.
