BLAS and LINPACK are used everywhere in Engineering tools. Numpy, Scipy, Matlab, Mathematica, et al are all just pretty wrappers on top of the FORTRAN that does the heavy lifting. It's why compiling from source also requires a Fortran compiler.

They've been vetted, tested, vetted more, and been running Engineering applications since the 70s.
