Teaching Licenses

On behalf of my class, I would like to thank Altair for your generous support to university learning.”

Altair offers education licenses to universities at a significant discount from our standard commercial rates. These licenses may be used for classroom instruction, as well as non-funded academic research. An educational license agreement needs to be in place at an institution before any software licenses are granted. Regardless whether you‘re interested in a class room CAE license, a license for your cluster, a research licence or a student licence — at the bottom line we all want to have the licensing as simple as possible allowing to focus on the important tasks: Teaching and research. The patented licence scheme plus our engagement at universities are key differentiators to other CAE vendors. With Altair's patented units-based licensing system, universities can pool and centralize their software investment to maximize utilization and accessibility throughout the entire campus - delivering far greater value than traditional licensing programs.
