Transpose of Matrix in Java

Transpose of Matrix in Java

You are given a M * N matrix, find Transpose of Matrix. Transpose of matrix is obtained by interchanging rows and columns of a matrix that is by changing rows to columns and columns to rows. 

Lets understand the problem statement graphically and it will be more clear,  


Finding transpose of Matrix is very simple. 

Transpose of given matrix can be obtained by changing its rows to columns and columns to rows. 
  1. Create a Transpose Matrix of, 
    Rows     = Total column of original matrix.

    Column = Total rows of original matrix.

  2. Iterate through Original matrix, and fill Transpose Matrix data by interchanging rows to column and column to rows as shown below,
    TransposeMatrix[col][row] = OriginalMatrix[row][col].

Java Program to find Transpose of Matrix

package matrix;

public class TransposeOfMatrix {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		new TransposeOfMatrix();

	public TransposeOfMatrix() {
		int[][] matrix = {
			{1,  2,  3,  4,  5},
			{6,  7,  8,  9,  10},
			{11, 12, 13, 14, 15}

		System.out.println("Before Transpose");
		int[][] transposeMatrix = new int[matrix[0].length][matrix.length];
		for (int i = 0; i < matrix.length; i++) {
			for (int j = 0; j < matrix[0].length; j++) {
				transposeMatrix[j][i] = matrix[i][j]; 
		System.out.println("\nAfter Transpose");
	private void printMatrix(int[][] matrix){
		for (int i = 0; i < matrix.length; i++) {
			for (int j = 0; j < matrix[0].length; j++) {
				System.out.print(matrix[i][j] + " ");
