On the Student Portal you can download a wide range of software programs. These include software from Microsoft, including Windows in several versions.

Licenses for programs

Students have access to a number of programs during their studies. Both the programs and any necessary user licenses can be downloaded from the Student Portal under 'Service'. There you will also find the software programs made available by the Faculty of Engineering.

To retrieve the programs, you need to be connected by VPN if you are working from outside the University network, although this does not apply to programs from Microsoft. Program licenses from Microsoft apply even after completion of your studies, with the exception of Office 365 whose license is only valid as long as your student account is active.
