Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders – the creators, innovators, and visionaries that will work to create a sustainable world. That’s why it’s our mission to equip every student with the software tools they need to succeed and create a better future.
We offer free simulation and data analytics software to students currently enrolled at any educational institution, and to student teams participating in competitions. Additionally, we provide countless resources for self-learning and support. No matter your needs and specialization, we have the solutions that will help you get the job done.
Included in your free Student Edition are more than 50 Altair products that give you near-limitless 3D, 1D, and 0D modeling and simulation capabilities. And users aren’t limited to a specific industry or use case.

If you’re currently enrolled at an academic institution with a valid university provided email address or student identification card, you can request a free student license.
You can use this license for all non-commercial coursework, research, and general studies.
We believe the best training comes from hands-on, real-world experience – competitions provide students this type of experience and foster innovation. For more than two decades Altair has proudly supported student teams with software, training, resources, and technical support.
Year after year, teams empowered by Altair software compete in and win at global competitions thanks in part to our engineering simulation and data science technologies.
To simply participate in this competition, you don’t need tools like Altair’s leading-edge modeling and simulation technology — but to win, you do!
