Pros: What I like most about this software aside from its GUI interface that parallels looks and usability to popular programs such as MS Office is its publishing feature. I think it is great how a report can be written up within the code format and with the click of a button, a report can be published that included written text and a user organized format and presentation of functions performed within the script or program file. This makes it very convenient as it allows everything to be together in one file, with a report generated without the necessity of a word processing application and splice in excerpts from the script or program file.

Cons: While the product is an excellent value an customer support is outstanding, I do feel that it is still very very expensive. The expense is only worth it I feel if it is a program that will be used on a daily basis, otherwise, I feel the price tag may not be worth it for occasional users or those seeking the conveniences provided by it.

Pros: MATLAB is insanely powerful! The built in functionality and packages allow you to have extreme problem solving power. I've used it for traffic simulations, civil engineering, numerical modeling, control systems and barely have scraped what it can do. The help community is amazing with a lot of open source code and user involvement.

Cons: I've not tried help through MATLAB itself, but the built in help is so so. Pricing is not clear but overall very high. After the student version there needs to be an intermediate level of software before the price jumps so dramatically.

Overall: I used this software to perform all calculations/modeling for my MS degree. Having come to the software with little coding experience, but a heavy math background, the software was very intuitive. The MATLAB language is one of the easier ive used.

Pros: The best thing about matlab is how open it is, as long as you know it's programming language and most common functions then all you have to do is translate your math problems and solve any type of calculus you require. It can even run simulations at ease, even wave propagation simulations which are always handy when testing the approximate response a seismic source will have on field.

Cons: It is super expensive, if you want to use it you will need to pay a lot of money not just for it's license but for other additional libraries that you might require and that are not included.

Overall: Matlab helps you solve any type of situation you can think of as long as there is a function for it or you can program it. It is really expensive though but if you can afford it then it is worth the money.

Awesome software! It helps with all the engineering calculation you can imagine.

Pros: This is a very simple to use tool once you learn the syntax. It takes much longer to master, but it is a much more powerful version of excel due to it's ability to better reference variables, increase the number of hierarchies, store data in different ways, manipulate data, and more.

Cons: It can only exist within the MATLAB framework and application, which limits its functionality. It also does not let you see the data computations as you are going through them in a visual manner unless you code them to do so. Lastly, it can be a bit difficult to format any output graphs, so that can be a pain sometimes.

Pros: MATLAB, unlike other programs, has a very complete console. You can do anything directly through the MATLAB console without having to write a complete C / C ++ program to do simple things.

MATLAB has the facility to create a simple and intuitive GUI with an assistant.

MATLAB has a large number of professional packages and toolboxes for solving complex problems. As Signal Processing, Image Processing, Calculation, etc.,

useful for the application of the theory of electronic circuits and the analysis of digital signals and electronic systems.

Cons: The most important weakness found in the use of the program is at the moment when its GUI starts to increase and has many objects, the program's performance begins to decrease very quickly, and at times, it begins to fail.

Another negative element is that said program does not allow having more than one function in each file. I mean, you can not start a kind of library in a file. If you have different functions, you need to have different files and the size of your projects increases a lot.

Overall: MATLAB has been useful as a technological tool for university work and work activities because it allows me to quickly test all the electronic tests and to carry out modifications of values or paramenters directly from the GUI.

Preliminary tests help to be more accurate in decision making and contribute to the reduction of product cost to the reduction of improvisation in our actions.

Pros: It is really easy to use. One of the thing that I really like is the fast computation of large matrix operations. The comparison between quantities is very fast, allowing the fast processing of many algorithms.

Regarding the script editor, the written code is really easy to debug at any time. It is easy to code since the program itself marks a lot things that the user must change to correct the syntax and to enhance the processing. The user defined functions works as fast as the built-in functions.

The price of toolboxes are affordable for students when it is first time is bought.

Cons: Sometimes, it is not easy to visualize matrices and numbers in general in the command windows. A compact manner to show these quantities might be a improvement of the software.

Overall: I have made a lot of assignments with Matlab. Also it served as a validation tool for capstone project and for master's thesis. Currently, I use Matlab daily for my PhD classes.

Pros: It is a language of high level of technical computing that facilitates simple and complex numerical calculations, which also allows the graphic visualization in 3D and 2D of them. It has a wide application in scientific studies. Integrates numerical analysis and matrix calculation where problems are expressed in the same way. It has specialized programs called toolboxes highlighting in the area of teaching basic mathematics, financial mathematics, statistics, simulation of dynamic systems, among others. It is an ideal software to develop advanced control systems in the engineering area. Allows the control of fonts, Greek letters, symbols, subscripts and superscripts. Make presentations with animation, with supports of colors as it is desired by the user. It allows you to make impressions both of the created program, the calculation made, of the 2D and 3D graphics, results table. It allows to export and import images, graphs, tables and mathematical expressions. You can enter and extract data from the fmatlab quickly. It has a wide range of linear algebra functions, specialized mathematical functions, logical and arithmetic operators, elementary matrices and vector manipulation, special matrices, basic statistics and data analysis, polynomials and interpolation. It has a help folder for software operation through a manual that allows it to be used by all types of beginner users or not.

Cons: The software despite having a documentation of its commands: description, characteristics and access, it is necessary for the user to understand that to create a program and can be manipulated: change data, formulas, presentation of results, fix badly scheduled lines , you must first execute the tutorm command to save the file where you want it, and then return to the saved file and execute other commands, this process requires a lot of practice and for some users it is complicated, therefore they stop using it. have extensive knowledge of the integrals and their methods to solve.

Overall: the benefits with matlab has been very satisfactory because through this software I managed to perform four regression programs: Linear Regression (least squares methods), Nonlinear Regression (Newton and Rhapson, Ascending Steps and Marquart). This program served to present the work of promotion in the university, which consisted in taking the data of a researcher on the behavior of the size of the fish with respect to the time and to estimate the parameters of the mathematical model exponential of Von Bertalaffi to find the mathematical expression that calculates the length of a fish. The program made three functional representations: the analytical, the tabular and the graphical. With this program I was able to manipulate the data, change colors, thicknesses of the lines, place the main title and title to the axes, in addition, the results could be exported to the word processor for the final report. This program has also provided me with tools for teaching calculus with analytical geometry (subject of functions), differential and integral calculus, with the possibility of manipulating the results and visualizing their changes when changes are made in the functional analytical representation. With this strategy the student has a greater possibility to reflect on the representations of the functions and their results. When I had difficulties to perform a complex calculation or use advanced programs I was supported by the documentation included in the help window, where there is a great variety of programming examples and software commands.

It is a really useful software but comes with some limitations. The main problem is not being open.

Pros: It is an excellent software tool for mathematical works that require precision, offers an integrated development with a programming language. It is available for several platforms such as Windows, Mac OS or Linux, so anyone can take advantage of this advantageous mathematical program. It is excellent for the implementation of algorithms, for the manipulation of matrices, also for the creation of user interfaces, the representation of data and / or functions, also well used for communication with programs in other languages or hardware devices. Particularly use this software at the university to detail mathematical models more easily.

Cons: It has an additional tool called MATLAB Builder under the section of tools to use functions of the program like for example files of the library that can be used in the construction of application net or Java. But in the computer where this program is downloaded it has to be used with another component that is additional to the MATLAB (Runtime), so that the files work perfectly. This increases the use of the disk.

Overall: You must work constantly with this program because with frequent use you learn to develop yourself within the software, it is of vital importance for the mathematical processes. Recommended.

Pros: What i like the most about matlab is that you can use it to handle large amount of data and display it in confortable ways. The programming language is not that difficult, so the learning curve is not that steep. It's capabilities can vary depending on the necessities, I've used it in several scenarios, from basic calculations, to gravimetric data analysis and seismic acquisition simulations.

Cons: Matlab included help is not really helpful, most of the time when having programming issues you have to resort to the internet for help. Importing databases from excel or txt is somewhat complicated, and normally the functions required need to be downloaded for them to function, which is a downside since TXT and XLSX are two of the most common formats one uses.

Overall: Matlab helps solve several issues, it's programming language is really easy and overall is a robust tool for using in engineering.

Pros: The first thing any user would be amazed by is the number of functions and features that the software provides. Almost anything can be done using this software. During my image processing project in Undergrad, I was amazed by the ease at which every function was to use. The Official website also contains a detailed description of how to use each and every function.

Cons: The least thing I like about this software is that it pops up multiple windows at random positions on your screen for every output you check. Closing all the windows is a little tedious when u work on huge projects.

Pros:  IT HIGH PRECISION, AND WIDE SUPPORT OF FUNCTIONS ALREADY DEVELOPED.
IN ADDITION, ITS BROAD USE ALLOWS INTERACTION WITH A LARGE AMOUNT OF USERS THAT FEED YOU BACK.
EXCELLENT GRAPHING CAPACITY.

Cons: THE DEBUGGING AND PROFILING TOOLS ARE NOT SUFFICIENT TO BE EASY TO USE FOR SOME PEOPLE.
I HAVE HAD EVENTUAL SPEED PROBLEMS AND THE PC WHERE MATLAB IS INSTALLED NEEDS MRC SO THAT THE MATLAB FILES FUNCTION CORRECTLY.

Overall: PROVIDES ME A GREAT NUMBER OF SIMPLE AND ADVANCED MATHEMATICAL FUNCTIONS, AND ALTHOUGH THE MAJORITY OF FUNCTIONS ARE PART OF THE MATLAB NUCLEUS AND ITS CODE IS NOT VISIBLE, THE REST OF THE FUNCTIONS ARE FOUND IN M FILES AND ITS CODE IS AVAILABLE FOR UPDATED VERSIONS. ALL THIS HAS DECREASED MY RESPONSE TIMES BEFORE CERTAIN CALCULATION SCENARIOS AND ALSO HAS ALLOWED ME TO PERFORM SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS THAT BEFORE I WAS DIFFICULT TO DO FOR THE CALCULATION TIME I HAD TO INVEST.

Pros: MATLAB is a very complete suite to make programs using a simple language and with an very intuitive workspace. Although is simple, it's very powerful, and have a lot of toolboxes that you can install for specifics themes, like electronic theory, image processing, digital systems, etc.
You can also create Graphic User Interfaces whit the wizard that MATLAB has. This is simple because you don't have to manipulate graphic libraries, and you don't have problems if you change your platform, I mean, you can start a program in OS X and you can open it in a Windows environment.
If you have a little knowledge of C/C++/Java, you can start using MATLAB and write simple programs just with open the app.
Also it has powerful complements like SIMULINK, where you can study the response of electrical circuits by drawing them with boxes and lines, very intuitive.

Cons: I work a lot by making Graphic User Interfaces, because the independence of any graphic library, but I dislike that when the GUI started to grow up and have a lot of things inside, MATLAB start to work slowly and sometimes, you have to reboot the program.
Also I work a lot with microprocessors, programming in C/C++, and when I have to return to MATLAB, I need to "translate" the C/C++ codes to MATLAB code.
Another thing that I dislike is that you only can have one function per file. I mean, you can't make a library all in one file, and if you have a big project, you have to have a lot of different files and the size of it start to grow quickly.

Pros: Matlab is an awesome app, you can do many simple things without knowing much about coding, but it also lets you do overly complicated things (like GUIs) with an easy and understandable language. Also, the community is huge, so if you have any problem or doubt somebody else has probably had it.

Cons: Some of the integrated apps it has are not as user-friendly as they could be. I went nuts trying to figure out how to use the neural nets app and I ended up doing them manually. Despite that, it's a powerful app.

I've used it during my study years, my experience about this product is good.

Pros: Matlab has a lot of functional features which could solve any complex numerical algorithms. The plots and graphical representation are very helpful than excel.The best part of matlab is it can iterate 1000 of design solutions for various inputs by just giving one code

Cons: The interface of matlab is not that much user friendly and also debugging errors is quite difficult. The processing duration gets a bit longer for complex fluid mechanics equation and optimisation algorithms.

Overall: I have used Matlab for creating plotting data in graphical format to study mechanical strain relation. I have also used Matlab for optimization algorithms.

I use MATLAB for engineering coursework. Works well for the problems I need to solve.

Pros: This software works well with certain types of engineering problems, such as iterations and dew and bubble point calculations. It is very easy to write for loops, while loops, and functions, which can be used over and over again in different problems, classes and situations. There are a lot of specific packages you can get that are catered to your needs, and a lot of other majors at my school use MATLAB for a wide variety of purposes.

The syntax is not hard to use at all, and is very similar to other programming languages. If you are familiar with others, learning MATLAB is a breeze. If you aren't familiar with other programming languages, learning MATLAB is more difficult but definitely doable through a in person class or online. Like any other programming language, the more you use it the better you get.

The interface is fairly easy to use, and the debugger works well. It is easy to step through your code to see what the issues are.

Cons: This software should implement easier ways to solve ODEs and other challenging engineering problems. Other math related software do this easily, so it should not be an issue to implement them into MATLAB. It could also be easier if the interface was easier to clean up, and if the command window results did not have so many spaces in it. I dislike having to scroll through the command window when I am trying to find results to a function that has a lot of outputs. I wish some of the add on packs came embedded in the software at the start. It is really annoying having to get a new add on pack just for one use!

Overall: I was able to quickly and efficiently solve chemical engineering problems. I also have the tools to solve a wide variety of other types of engineering and math problems.

Pros: Extraordinary measure of highlights and capacities, incredible for doing a wide range of math. Be that as it may, the documentation is really poor. The greater part of the documentation resembles a word reference definition, with couple of cases on the best way to really utilize/execute a capacity. I have invested a ton of energy looking for cases of capacity utilization and also making inquiries on their discussions. It'd spare novices a ton of time if Math-works put somewhat more time in delivering nice documentation.

Cons: One of the main problems I had with this software is debugging a problematic code. I always found it difficult to understand what the error actually meant and usually had me needing to make a google search, an noneffective use of my time. I feel like if they errors were more helpful and clear then I would be able to become much more effective at using this program.
