Classroom, Campus and Site Packs
These packs for SOLIDWORKS Education Edition let up to 60, 200, 500 or
2000 students use the package simultaneously via a network
(computers must be linked to the one server holding the licence, but there is no limit to the number
of computers onto which the software can be installed)
. Whilst the licence permits
you to run that version of the software forever on the network, we advise
universities to keep their subscription up to date so that, along with the
other benefits of the subscription (see below), the students can still use
Student Premium licences.
Up to 60, 200, 500 or 2000 one year Student
Premium licences are also provided whilst in subscription.
A subscription provides automatic software updates (annually), free
downloadable curriculum resources, up to 60, 200, 500 or 2000 one
year Student Premium licences and one free entry for each
student/lecturer to the SOLIDWORKS examinations CSWA-Academic, CSDA
and CSWSA-FEA. One free entry for every CSWA-Academic qualified
student/lecturer to the CSWP examination is also included.
Academic Research Licence
Unlike the Education Edition, the Academic Research Licence does not
contain the educational watermark and has no restrictions for use in
publications, industry-funded projects and patent applications. It is not
only available to university research departments, but also to medical
schools and teaching hospitals affiliated with a university. For further
information contact TechSoft or see here.
