Access Software

Software and Licenses

If you plan to use software as you prepare your solution, it is recommended that you become familiar with it well ahead of Challenge weekend.

Free software is offered to you from the following organizations:

  • MATLAB by MathWorks (Teams can request software access from the MathWorks site during the Challenge year.)
  • Wolfram Research (Free licenses offered to registered teams only. Once you register and have login credentials, you can access license information from Wolfram.)

SOFTWARE DEADLINE: To obtain software licenses prior to Challenge weekend, requests are due by Monday, February 21, 2022 at 12:00 p.m. EST. 

Use of any technical computing software is not required and will in no way influence judging or selection of winners in the Challenge. See sample score guide to see what judges want to see. Use of any technical computing software or coding will make your team eligible for the extra ancillary Technical Computing Scholarship Award.
