Synopsys Low-Cost Classroom Teaching Licenses

EUROPRACTICE Synopsys Classroom Teaching licenses are made available for the teaching and instruction of students in cases where the Institute has too few regular EUROPRACTICE non-commercial research and training licenses for mass-class teaching. The Classroom Teaching licenses have the same functionality as regular EUROPRACTICE Synopsys non-commercial research and training licenses but are made available at lower cost since use is restricted to teaching only and no research use of any sort is allowed.

The following Synopsys Classroom Teaching licenses suites are available:

An application for access to low-cost Synopsys Classroom Teaching licenses requires an initial proposal and renewals require a successful yearly report. In order to be eligible for consideration for Classroom Teaching licenses, institutes must have 1 or more regular EUROPRACTICE non-commercial research and training licenses under maintenance of the same suite. The Classroom Teaching licenses must also be located on a separate license server from the regular EUROPRACTICE Synopsys licenses.

Synopsys Classroom Teaching licenses are free of initial license charge but are subject to Classroom Teaching maintenance supplements. Access to Classroom Teaching licenses is at the discretion of Europractice and Synopsys.

Institutes ordering Classroom Teaching licenses may also be especially interested in Synopsys' Curriculum Materials. Synopsys' Curriculum materials can be used to implement a new course or supplement content in an existing course quickly and easily. These curriculum materials range from whole semester courses to shorter specific technical presentations and these may be used as courseware for teaching purposes by University members.
