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 expires 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.

The setup, EES application and license files must be placed on a secure server operated by the academic institution that provides access to students and faculty in the adopting department(s), but restricts access to others. Academic licenses require an internet connection having a recognized university IP address. Distribution of the setup and license files to students is not permitted. Installation of the program on individual's personal computers is not allowed. Academic versions can be accessed by students and faculty in the educational department that has purchased the license through computers that are owned or operated by the department using 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, or Remote Login to a server computer, provided that there is a login procedure for authorized users.
