Investments in Education
MathWorks supports programs that inspire learning and advance education in engineering, science, and math. Our strong commitment to education comes from believing in the power of learning and the ability of engineering, science, and math to find innovative solutions to real-world problems.
Student engineering competitions inspire the next generation of innovators to learn and develop problem-solving skills. Teams of students throughout the world use MATLAB and Simulink products, financial support, training, and coaching from our staff to achieve competition objectives. MathWorks sponsors student programs that span a variety of disciplines, including automotive, aerospace, systems biology, communications, and robotics.
MathWorks supports museums that stimulate interest in and further understanding of science and technology. From exhibit development to traveling workshops, our museum partnerships help people discover and explore the science that shapes our world. Current partnerships include:
- Boston Children’s Museum (Boston, Massachusetts)
- Cambridge Science Center (Cambridge, UK)
- Deutsches Museum (Germany)
- The Discovery Museums (Acton, Massachusetts)
- EcoTarium (Worcester, Massachusetts)
- Science Museum (London, UK)
- Museum of Science (Boston, Massachusetts)
- New England Aquarium (Boston, Massachusetts)
- Palais de la Découverte (Paris, France)
- Zoo New England (Boston and Stoneham, Massachusetts)
MathWorks sponsors programs that educate, engage, and encourage students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) related studies and careers. These programs include:
MathWorks selectively supports engineering students who excel in using our tools to develop innovative solutions to complex problems. We fund a limited number of graduate fellowships and university studentships at:
- Northeastern University
- RWTH Aachen
- Stanford University
- Technical University of Munich
- University of California, Berkeley
- University of Cambridge
- University of Oxford
- University of Palermo
- University of Stuttgart
- University of Tennessee - Knoxville
- Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
- Worcester Polytechnic University
MathWorks supports eligible educational institutions that are committed to using MATLAB, Simulink, and Model-Based Design to explore teaching and learning innovations at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Support is given to select education institutions on an annual basis to help them create new curricula that combine MATLAB and Simulink products with teaching using project-based learning and similar active teaching techniques.

Global Education Advancement
MathWorks is committed to fostering engineering education around the world. Through partnerships with a number of academic institutions, we support initiatives to advance learning in the global community. Examples include:
- MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW), an effort to share core academic materials from MIT courses, including syllabi, lecture notes, assignments, and exams
- Japan Massive Open Online Courses (JMOOC), a nationwide collaboration between industry and academia to extend online higher learning to the masses within and outside of university campuses
- KTH Innovative Centre for Embedded Systems (ICES), established to achieve excellence in research, education, and industrial innovation related to embedded systems
- IEEE James H. Mulligan Jr. Education Medal, which is awarded each year to recognize a professor for his or her career of outstanding contributions to engineering education
- MathWorks Professor of Mathematics at MIT, currently held by Professor Jörn Dunkel
- MITx, sponsorship of MIT’s edX initiative advancing education worldwide through open online courses
- Wikimedia Foundation, the nonprofit organization that empowers and engages people around the world to collect and develop educational content under a free license or in the public domain, and to disseminate it effectively and globally
