Open Source Software

Scilab is a free and open source software for engineers & scientists, with a long history (first release in 1994) and a growing community (100 000 downloads every months worldwide).

Scilab is used for modeling, simulation and data analytics, in industrial companies (Airbus, ArcelorMittal, Air liquide, Sanofi, Microchip, …) and education & research (Fraunhofer Institute, Aerospace agencies, …)


Scilab reinvents itself!

At the origin of an open-source software already used by more than a million engineers and researchers worldwide, we decided to increase our services to support you, decision-makers and captains of industry who wish to join the adventure.


Applied mathematics

Covering the different application fields of Scilab, our team developed a deep understanding of the outstanding principals of numerical computation. This involves the uses of solvers and algorithms for tackling complexe physical problems. The core of Scilab being based on linear algebric librairies, pure programming skills are not enough. Theses are the abilities that were powering geniouses over the times such as alan turing.

Software development

Developing and maintaining Scilab requires a broad set of programming skills, from a low level of hardware understanding to a high level of interface development. This expertise goes through different programming languages:

  • C/C++
  • JAVA
  • Fortran

The quality of our code proves our expertise in programming.




Scilab is a powerful and accessible tool for education all over the world
