Is Matlab path automatically added to evironment variables after installation?

Hi All,
I was wondering if Matlab path is s automatically added to evironment variables after installation or it is just an option should be added by the user? I am running an app to launch matlab each time from CMD but I am not sure if it is always good to do it this way since I have a doubt that matlab's path is not automatically added.
Any answer is appreciated.

You should set up your application to find the correct/desired installation of MATLAB and use it. Relying on the path leaves you open to potential error conditions (no MATLAB on the PATH, multiple MATLABs on the path, the wrong MATLAB on the PATH), and assumes that not only the end-user has the ability to modify the PATH themselves, but that 1) they know how to modify it 2) they modify it correctly and 3) they will do it whenever they install your application.

With MS Windows, typically the "right" way is to use the registry to locate MATLAB. It is a bit of a nuisance, but it is what the registry is designed for.
