Yes, MATLAB is available on the library's Owlnet computers.

Rice University has initiated a site license agreement with Mathworks for the MATLAB software and several of its toolboxes.  This license is available and ready to use for all faculty, staff, and students and includes the ability to install on both Rice-owned and personally owned computers. [July 20, 2017]

For information on how to download and install MATLAB, please visit  A list of the toolboxes is also available in this knowledgebase article. 

For tutorials on how to use MATLAB, please visit  Be aware that if you do not have a Mathworks account, you will need to create one to use the tutorials.  Instructions are on the Mathworks web site for creating an account.
