Bringing Technology and Innovation to the Classroom
Teach with Technology  

With the landscape of CAE technology changing so rapidly, it can be difficult to know just where to start. With this in mind, MSC offers
targeted Academic Bundles, designed to provide you with a complete collection of the most current software applications for FEA, Motion,
and Multidiscipline CAE Simulation.

Take advantage of amazingly low academic pricing and start the 2013-2014 school year with the same CAE software professionals
use and prospective employers want you to use and get access to
the latest versions as soon as they are released.
