PTC Academic Program for Universities -

Professor Program

The PTC Academic Program for Universities is the most comprehensive program available to professors and students worldwide. We provide, either for free or for a minimal fee, Creo Elements/Pro (formerly Pro/ENGINEER) 3D CAD software, along with other PTC software applications, plus related courseware – enabling your students to enjoy a unique and creative exploration of design, engineering and technology.

Right now, PTC Academic Program is building a network of consortia with the goal of developing more effective approaches to product development education. This collaborative project aims to foster academic liaisons with industry, and engage our commercial partners with the development of curriculum.
