Choose the perfect License option that serves your business needs the most

Individual

Select this license if you are an end user and you want to operate, install, and administer the software yourself. Your organization can also designate an administrator to manage a group of Individual licenses for the convenience of centralized administration. This license option allows installation on the following platforms: Windows, Linux, and Macintosh.

Network Named User

This license allows you to license a group of people in your organization and to administer Named User licensing in a network-only configuration using the FlexNet license. This license option works on Windows, Linux, and Macintosh.

Concurrent

This license type is ideal to multiple users to access the software in a network-only configuration using the FlexNet license. This license option uses the FlexNet license in Floating License mode and is available for Windows, Linux, and Macintosh.

Campus-Wide Use

Select this license if you represent a degree-granting institution that would like to make MATLAB and Simulink available to all faculty, researchers, and students on university-owned machines as well as personally-owned computers. This license option allows installation on the following platforms: Windows, Linux, and Macintosh.

Academic Use

Individual

Select this license if you are faculty, staff, or researcher at a degree-granting institution and you want to operate, install, and administer the software yourself. The products are used by a single named user and can be activated on up to four different computers, provided that the products are only accessible to and used by that single named user. A named user may not use a program on more than two computers simultaneously. These license options allow installation on the following platforms: Windows, Linux, and Macintosh.

Concurrent

Select this license if your degree-granting institution would like to license a group of faculty, staff, or researchers in a network-only configuration using the FlexNet license. This license option allow installation on the following platforms: Windows, Linux, and Macintosh.

This license type allows the operation of MATLAB for personal use only, not for government, academic, commercial, or other organizational use. Works for Windows, Linux, and Macintosh.

If you are a student at a degree-granting institution and would like to use MATLAB, Simulink, or add-on products to meet course requirements and for academic research, this is the ideal license for you.

Features:

  • Is available on the following platforms: Windows, Linux, and Macintosh
  • Is not for government, commercial, academic faculty and staff, or other organizational use
  • Is not for profit or revenue-generating activities
  • May be used by teachers and students at primary and secondary schools

A single named individual may use the software simultaneously on at most two computers. There is no restriction on the number of simultaneous sessions that the designated user may run. You may replace the designated user we have on file for the license on a temporary or permanent basis no more than two (2) times a year, provided that only one licensed user is designated to us as the Named User, at any given time. A Named Single User License may be accessed and used via a single encrypted connection providing secure remote access, such as Virtual Private Network or Remote Desktop Protocol (using Network Level Authentication and using encryption).

You can install the COMSOL Multiphysics software on one designated computer and different users can take turns using the software on that computer, one user at a time. There is no restriction on the number of simultaneous sessions that the one user may run. The CPU version of the software may not be accessed or used over a network or remotely.

Licensed per concurrent user, you can install the software on as many machines on your network as needed within your country or territory. The COMSOL Multiphysics software can run on local computers, with the network used only for license authentication. There is no restriction on the number of simultaneous sessions that a concurrent user may run on a local computer. Alternatively, you can run the software on a remote computer over your network. Support for remote computing includes using Windows® Remote Desktop. In addition, this license type allows access to the COMSOL computational engine using a client. For example, you can run the graphical user interface on an inexpensive local machine, while offloading the heavy computations to a remote high-end machine. Cluster and cloud computing is supported on Windows® and Linux® platforms. For local use, there is no restriction on the number of simultaneous sessions that one concurrent user may run. With respect to cluster computing and cluster sweeps, a single model may be run on multiple compute nodes with no restriction on the number of compute nodes.

Up to 30 teachers and students can run the software for classroom purposes over the school’s network where they access the license on-campus or through a secure remote connection.
