MathCAD is one of the best engineering softwares available.
MathCAD, by its name, primarily does mathematical calculations.
Considering its features, it has got a nice interface and it is easy to use.
The editing style can be described as Graphical. There is a white drawing board or paper, where you can write equations or draw figures or matrices, etc, like you do in an ordinary paper. It doesn't matter if one equation is not related to that other or not.
People who were using matlab might find this a bit confusing to use. But this software is really easy to learn and to use.
Well, the program and installation are not that big. There are fewer features in this program compared to Matlab. But it is the best you would get after Matlab. There are a lot of add-ons available that could be installed to improve that program and its capabilities like the Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering Libraries. Also, there are Pro/ENGINEER eLearning Library, Windchill PDMLink eLearning Library, etc. But all of them cost more than the actual software itself. The only drawback of the softwares is its price.
