Educational Version

Your future is important to us. For this reason, we offer the SOFiSTiK Educational version (single user) free of charge with full functionality for all students and faculty from the field of civil engineering, environmental engineering, geotechnology, architecture or mechanical engineering.

To request your Educational version simply complete the following form and attach a current enrolment/acceptance letter/student ID or working certificate in pdf format. After successful verification of the data we will send you a license key via email.  

To get started with our software, we recommend a visit to our infocenter and the SOFiSTiK YouTube channel with many SOFinars, tutorials and examples. You can also exchange ideas with peers in the SOFiSTiK Forum.
