Student Software Licenses

Looking to use Aimsun Next for your university project?

Aimsun Next Student License

The Aimsun Next Student License is completely free to all students currently studying a relevant field at a recognized university.

The Student License gives students the option to install a special free version of Aimsun Next on their personal computers for homework. In terms of features, the Student License is the same as the Classroom License, but designed for individual undergraduates to continue to work on university lab projects in their own time.

Features of the Aimsun Next Student License:

  • Free
  • Expert edition – use the most powerful edition of Aimsun Next (with some restrictions)
  • Generous size restrictions: model up to 100 intersections and 200 km of lanes
  • Save option enabled
  • 12 months of validity from the delivery date
  • Unlimited signalized intersections
  • Unrestricted zoning systems, public transport, etc
  • NO time locks or limits on daily simulation time

Note that the Student License is node-locked, which means that it is non transferable – you can only install it once, on one workstation.

Optional extras such as the API or microSDK are not available with the Student License.

In order to qualify for the free Student License you will need to demonstrate that you are currently affiliated to a relevant study program in a recognized university.
