To install Matlab, you first need to have the activation key. You will find this at http://www.ekstranet.its.aau.dk/software/mathworks/download-mathworks/ (you will need to log in). When you have logged in, press the "Students" link. Save the document.

Afterwards you need a MathWorks account that must have the activation key attached. You do this by following the steps below. There is also support available at http://www.ekstranet.its.aau.dk/software/mathworks/mathworks-support/ that you can use if you get problems during the steps below.

- Go to www.mathworks.com/
- Click "Create Account" (top right corner)
- Fill in the required information - you must use your "@student.aau.dk" email address (important!)
- Under the question "How will you use MathWorks software?" you must choose "Academic use"
- Next page on customization is optional
- You will recieve an email that you must confirm
- When you log in at www.mathworks.com/, click "My account" at the op right corner
- Choose "Associate now"
- Choose "Activation key" and use the one you found earlier

Then Matlab can be installed as described here: http://www.ekstranet.its.aau.dk/software/mathworks/mathworks-support/.

**Note that you only need to install "Matlab" and "Symbolic Math Toolbox".**
