Global Academic Program - More than Just Licenses!
We are committed to preparing students for a successful engineering career by educating them in the most advanced simulation tool available, STAR-CCM+. Our "more than just licenses" philosophy is dedicated to ensuring students, professors and grads have access to the latest info, training & support to guarantee success in academia and beyond.

  • STAR-CCM+ is widely used in the simulation of Formula SAE Cars
  • Our teaching modules have been developed under the guidance of Professor David Gosman and Milovan Peric, author of the widely used book, Computational Methods for Fluid Dynamics.
  • Are the computers in the lab fully occupied? Are you off-campus and have an assignment or project due tomorrow? How about a last minute tweak to the competition vehicle? Wouldn't it be nice if you had your very own STAR-CCM+ license to ease the pain of these situations?

Recognizing the importance of supporting the global academic engineering community, we offer students and academic institutions the opportunity to take advantage of our Global Academic Program. To assist in educating the engineers of tomorrow, CD-adapco provides a number of academic license packages to the academic community. 

While many software companies provide academic licenses, CD-adapco is proud of the complete program (or package) that surrounds our licenses.  It is not enough to just provide the software, we want to make sure our academic users have access to all the training and resources available to ensure engineering success.

CD-adapco has built its company and reputation on a positive user experience -- from our easy to use, fully integrated code to above industry standard training and support.  This experience starts in academia – all of our academic packages provide full capability, no cell limit licenses (the very same as used by our commercial customers) as well as access to our state-of-the-art support portal – called Steve.

The CD-adapco Academic Program goes beyond just providing software licenses.  Participants and program Alumni can take advantage of the following resources and benefits:

  • FREE STAR-CCM+ Foundation Training (live distantance learning)
  • Teaching Modules and Tutorials
  • Customer Support Portal (called STEVE)
  • Monthly STAR Academics Newsletter
  • Academic CFD Simulation Group on LinkedIn
  • Academic  Contests
  • Tech Talk Academic Webcasts
