Academic Site Licenses

Academic versions are available only to educational institutions involved in formal classroom instruction. Educational institutions can purchase an Academic Commercial site license directly from F-Chart Software for one-time fee of $1,500. A 32-bit Academic Professional version for a single department is available for a one-time fee of $3,750. The Professional version solves larger problems, provides capability to make stand-alone programs, offers genetic optimization, animation capabilities, and other capabilities. The 32-bit Academic Professional license can be upgraded to a 64-bit Academic Professional license by purchase of the 64-bit license file. See the 64-bit license page for details.

A single academic license can be used only by one department at an educational institution. If two departments within a college or equivalent both obtain a license of the same type, then F-Chart Software will provide a license for the whole college of engineering or equivalent. An Academic license is for instructional use only. A separate non-academic license is required if the product is used for sponsored research or other activities that are not a part of a student's graduation requirement. Thesis research that leads to a advanced degree is considered an academic activity and it is allowed under the license agreement.

Academic licenses expire on September 1 each year. Before the September 1 expiration date, the designated administrator for the adopting department will be provided with an account and password so that a new academic version can be installed. There is no cost for this update. In addition, new versions can be downloaded by the administrator at any time.

The setup, EES application and license files must not be distributed to persons who are not affiliated with the adopting department(s). Academic licenses require an internet connection having an IP address that maps to the University. Off-campus access to EES can be provided by the department through their use of a program that provides internet delivery such as AppsAnywhere, XENAPP, Other alternatives are Remote Login to a server computer, provided that there is a login procedure for authorized users, or use of VPN such that the resulting IP address maps to the university.
