Software programs include:

  • Ansys Student Software
  • Autodesk
  • Microsoft Software (currently Azure Dev Tools for Teaching and formerly known as Microsoft Imagine, Dreamspark or MSDNAA)
  • Mathematica
  • Matlab
  • Microsoft Office 365 Pro
  • PTC Creo Student Edition
  • SolidWorks
  • VMware
  • LabVIEW 
To download and for more information, visit the CSE-IT Downloadable Software web page.

Use AppsToGo

AppsToGo is a University of Minnesota application delivery service that allows you to access software without having to install the software on your computer. Once you are set up with the necessary software, you can sign in to AppsToGo to use virtualized software applications, called Apps.

Engineering software such as SolidWorks, Ansys, Creo, Mathematica, and MatLab are available through AppsToGo to use on your personal computer

For more information and access, visit the AppsToGo Self-Help Guide.

Access CSE Labs computers offsite

CSE-IT supports ways to connect to University machines from off-campus.

CSE Labs remain open

If you cannot download software or connect remotely, all of the CSE instructional computer labs remain open as per their normal schedule with limited staffing. You will need your UCard to enter the building. CSE Labs in Keller Hall, Room 4-250 and the Mechanical Engineering Building, Room 308 are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The labs are open to accommodate students who can't go home and/or don't have a computer access. Please practice social distancing and stay six feet apart in the lab. There should be plenty of room to do this. Wash your hands, use hand sanitizer and avoid touching your face. For more information, visit the CSE-IT website or email csehelp@umn.edu.
