Student Software

As a student, you have several software options. If you want to get started immediately, you can use the button below to download Simio Personal Edition. This version of Simio puts no limits on what you can model and is fully functional for small models.

Your instructor has probably already arranged to have Simio software available in your institution labs. This lab software is recommended for use in most courses and may also include the scheduling features from Simio Enterprise Edition.

For $25 you can also obtain a personal copy of Simio for installation on your own machine. This is the academic equivalent of Simio Design Edition. Your instructor must arrange for you to obtain that software - see your instructor for the link.
