What academic software is available to Michigan Engineering students at no cost?

CAEN works with the University and vendors to offer editions of academic software that Michigan Engineering students can install on their personal computers at no cost.  In many cases, the applications are only available to students who are enrolled in a for-credit U-M course during the current academic term. A list of the available applications, and a link to each of their license restrictions, is available below:


Note: CAEN will not troubleshoot or support problems with software installation issues or errors.
Each student has a personal and unique computer configuration, so CAEN recommends contacting the software vendor directly for support with their application.
