Solidworks Education Edition will now be available for all College of Engineering computer labs and faculty office computers. The College has a network license sufficient to cover all computers within the College.
A limited number of student editions are available for download onto personally owned laptops. Please contact your departmental administrator for access to the software download and license key.
Solidworks will not support x32 operating systems after 2013. You will not be able to upgrade to Solidworks 2014 next year unless you upgrade to a x64 operating system. You will still be able to run the 2013 Solidworks edition and earlier on Windows 7 x32 systems.
Also, our current network license is the last to support XP, Vista or 2003. Next year’s network license will no longer support any of these operating systems regardless of Solidworks version.
