Function UpperTriangular only cuts the lower triangular places off (which is not what I need) and RowReduce makes the completely reduced echelon form of matrix.

LUDecomposition will give, among other things, the upper triangular part. Note that it does pivoting so any usage of the result would need to take that into account.
