GAUSS in the Classroom

GAUSS in the Classroom

The ideal environment for learning – and leading the way.

GAUSS provides students and researchers with the high-end analytical tools needed to solve the complex problems they’ll face in both academic and professional careers. Unlike other software, the flexible GAUSS mathematical matrix programming language stimulates learning through the act of innovation by removing obstacles between ideas and results.

GAUSS delivers several distinct advantages in the educational environment:


Like any kind of hands-on learning, the highly interactive nature of GAUSS fosters real understanding and retention for maximum success in solving real world problems.


Another key advantage of GAUSS is the flexibility to customize models to solve a broader range of problems. This provides the opportunity for students to extend theoretical knowledge to real-world problem solving, empowering students to work in a wide variety of positions and offer more value to future employers.
