Currently BCC manages the following software licences:

  • COMSOL – (Multiphysics Software Product Suite)
  • EViews –  (Econometric analysis, forecasting & simulation)
  • Simulink & Matlab (The language of technical computing, with about 50 toolboxes)
    (faculty and students can fetch their licenses here)
  • Minitab (Statistical computation tool)
  • Solidworks (3D CAD and Modelling tool)
  • SPSS (Statistical computing tool)
  • Stata (statistical software package)
  • Treeage (Decision trees, advanced modeling)
  • XpressMP (Linear programming)
  • Siemens PTI PSS 32 (Power system planning and data management)

If you need license(s) for any of these software, please contact “hotline@bilkent.edu.tr“.

Microsoft product licenses should be obtained through the university’s Procurement Office.

Microsoft licenses for some products to be used for research purposes and by students, can obtained through the Microsoft DreamSpark programme. In order to use this programme, an individual must be a member of a STEM dept.
