Tuesday, 24 February, 2015

For a few years SCIA has been allowing every enrolled structural engineering student, postgraduate or professor to download a completely free copy of SCIA Engineer and SCIA Design Forms. Today, thousands of happy students are using a SCIA Engineer academic edition. This software version is not limited in any way: Not only do students get all necessary design and analysis tools, but also the full power to lift any 3D design to a new level.

New: Thesis Graduation Projects from Students and Postgraduates

We recently started a new section on our SCIA Campus website where students - having written their thesis for getting a degree or postgraduate diploma and having used SCIA software - can share their thesis and work with others. If interested in this website and proud of your work, send us an email at and we will send you the instructions on how to proceed.
