MATLAB has excellent plugins for processing and analyzing data. Furthermore, it is highly reliable for performing complex calculations/computations (such as running different types of dimensionality reduction techniques on datasets) and is a great environment for developing new algorithms.

Likelihood to Recommend

For a mechanical engineer, MATLAB can be pretty useful for data collection and analysis. It can reveal the X best results from an excel sheet, create a program for manual data entry or plot data. However, it would not be appropriate for more concrete designs, analysis of parts and assembly.

MATLAB is well-suited for running proof-of-concept simulations. The learning curve is smooth, so setting up initial experiments is easy. MATLAB is well-respected in the academic community as well as the industry.

The MATLAB is suited in various fields. It is best suited for the field of research and development. The major problems occur where we need to enhance and detect anything in an image, maybe medical images. MATLAB is also used in simulating various wireless networks with the latest technology.

It is really one of the only programs that is decent in computing statistical processes. While the R program can also be used for many of the same tasks, I have found that MATLAB is generally more proficient at complex or long statistical calculations. Unlike R, MATLAB is often difficult to produce good-looking outputs

Matlab is a good language to learn. It helps users, programmers, and researchers perform extensive data analysis and visualization. It is easy to use but can crash more frequent because of how old it is. Users do not have to be programmatically inclined to use or learn Matlab.

I use it as a math tool for functions not done by hand, and a good way to view plots and data quickly. Also recently used as a tool to study next gen sequencing data from DNA sequencing results. The program can be made very simple to use, so that anyone without programing experience can use it.

MATLAB is fantastic for analyzing, sorting, and displaying data. I use it all the time to make large data sets easier to understand. It is fantastic for making plots and graphs that display data sets. When you are looking to develop a full application to load onto a smartphone or tablet, MATLAB will not be enough.

MATLAB is very good for solving any linear models. Also good for solving linearized DSGEs where toolboxes such as Dynare come very handy. It has some nice toolboxes for time-series econometrics, Kalman filtering, and Bayesian estimation.

MATLAB is well suited for data processing and filtering. It can be used well with civil engineering problems related to earthquake or wind engineering. It has a lot of inbuilt models within it. I have used it for Artificial Neural Networks. I have run heavy simulations with MATLAB and the results that I obtained were similar to what I got when I did heavy finite element simulations.

Why I Prefer MatLab over Python

Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

My rating would have been an "8" if MatLab was more affordable, but because of its steep price point, and especially after its recent increase in licensing price, I don't feel comfortable recommending my colleagues a tool that I absolutely love and use everyday, but also believe that it is overpriced. Had the price not been an issue, I would've strongly recommended MatLab to all my peers, especially those working in STEM.

MATLAB: not just a programming environment

Likelihood to Recommend

MATLAB is an outstanding environment for scientific research and engineering teams to develop scripts and simulations and be able to look into new areas of interest without having specialized knowledge of the topic. You can make use of the many available toolboxes in many different fields such as Statistics, Data Science and Databases. You can even compile code that interacts with other programming languages like C++, third-party embedded systems and industrial hardware (PLCs). MATLAB also has a simulation environment that enables you to create visual representations of real systems to interact with them and adjust them before production saving you time and money.

MATLAB: An academic program for great for prototyping in the real world

Likelihood to Recommend

MATLAB is great for (and already widely used) for academic/scholarly projects, but that doesn't mean it isn't useful outside those contexts! We've found it great for quickly getting ideas down into useable code for prototyping. We do not find that MATLAB is great for writing code that can be used in "real world" applications like web apps, but code can be ported to another language if needed.

Well suited when complex calculations including, but not limited to, matrices, multiple dimensions, arrays, etc. are needed. Also, if particular Matlab-based packages are desired. It is, however, expensive for non-academic users, so for simpler tasks, other free open-source software can be considered. Dedicated MATLAB support also comes with the purchase, not to mention many training resources.

MATLAB - The powerful platform to solve complicated problems

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

Easy coding, Small data handling, curve fitting, and optimization of the system are all well suited in MATLAB, whereas if you have large sets of data they will make the process very slow. In my research, I always use Matlab for generating figures and analyzing the data. Sometimes, if the coding is composed with large data, then it is a problem. Overall, I will recommend using MATLAB as there is no other suitable software as user-friendly as MATLAB.

Likelihood to Recommend

MATLAB is very suitable for educational use, such as to test new algorithms, to simulate/optimize product design, and to analyze large sets of data. However, installing MATLAB needs a large amount of space in a computer, and using it to process data, which is the most popular feature, also consumes large memory/RAM in a computer. Users would need to configure the computer before installing it on the computer.

Likelihood to Recommend

MATLAB is well suited for research work, for quick programming and analysis of results, and to program scientific functions. It is good for small projects mainly and is well suited for designing a software workflow. It is less appropriate to deploy final live models on the MATLAB platform or to build scalable applications for deployment.

This is a good software for engineering students. It can be useful for electrical, mechanical and computer science students for solving different aspects of problems. Image processing & mathematical calculations can be done by using MATLAB software. On the contrary, MATLAB software is not appropriate software for implementing deep neural networks and 3D plot.
