    “I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed. Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing could vanquish me.”
    ― Cheryl Strayed, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

    Nope. I can still only pick one ear. But I did get the T-shirt.

    They use half a dozen commercial math tools in their coursework. MATLAB is pretty popular though.

    “Every place is a goldmine. You have only to give yourself time, sit in a teahouse watching the passers-by, stand in a corner of the market, go for a haircut. You pick up a thread – a word, a meeting, a friend of a friend of someone you have just met – and soon the most insipid, most insignificant place becomes a mirror of the world, a window on life, a theatre of humanity.”

    I'm not to sure. Doesn't MAPLE and Mathematica have apt instances in which the kernel is used with MATLAB, and MATLAB is used for engineering and matrices?

    :EDIT:

    The headquarters for MAPLE (at least North America) gravitates just outside the university, so...
