> Academic Research License Purchase Eligibility:
University research laboratories, medical schools, and teaching hospitals may purchase SOLIDWORKS Academic Research Licenses at 50% off the commercial list pricing for all products and services. There are no exceptions to this policy. Medical schools and teaching hospitals affiliated with universities are considered research facilities.
If SOLIDWORKS is used as part of your research at the school, you would need a Academic Research License. if SOLIDWORKS is used as part of a class you are instructing, you would qualify for educational licensing. Please note that you cannot cross-use an educational license for your research, even if it is primarily intended for teaching a class. A separate Academic Research license is required in such cases.
Please note: Government research labs are not eligible for Academic Research licensing.
