MathWorks is the leading developer of mathematical computing software for engineers and scientists, who worldwide rely on our products to accelerate the pace of discovery, innovation, and development. Our software is used to design, simulate, and test many of the products we use every day. The car you drive, the plane you’ll fly on for your next trip, the smartphone you can’t live without, even your washing machine! Our tools are used to develop breakthroughs transforming the way we live, learn, and work - the rockets that may someday take you into space, autonomous robots, and wave farms that harness the power of waves to generate clean energy.

MATLAB and Simulink essentially help engineers and scientists do their best work.
