Individual Licenses

COMSOL Multiphysics


COMSOL Multiphysics is the platform for your physics-based simulations. Consisting of a number of add-on products that augment your modeling workflow, you can expand your understanding, optimization and verification of your designs and processes.

Note: There are a limited number of seats and usage for COMSOL is typically very high towards the end of a semester, so if you are unable to check out a license for COMSOL, it is often because all licenses are currently in use. Try to check out a license periodically throughout the day. A license should become available to you eventually. During high-use periods, you may find it advantageous to schedule your COMSOL jobs for the morning or night.
