Matlab Site License Details 

The MATLAB Total Academic Headcount (TAH) license is expected to provide substantial institutional cost savings and also make access to MATLAB available to a much larger pool of users at Western.

The cost of the site license will be shared between departmental contributions and central funding and the funding model has been constructed so as to reduce the total faculty cost when compared to the previous non Campus Wide licensing model.
