Academic Licenses

Apart from our Subscription Packages and Perpetual Licenses, DHI also supports research and teaching institutions through the provision of Academic Licenses (also known as Labkits) for academic staff and students at all tertiary levels. A brief introduction to our Academic Licenses license options is given below. For more detail (including pricing information), please contact your local DHI office.

Academic licenses are offered in selected geographical areas only and are not available in China (including Taiwan and Hong Kong), India, Bangladesh and Iran.

It features full functionality but limited in size, and is sold at competitive prices starting from EUR2,060 depending on type of software and modules.

The Classroom Subscription is identical to a Classroom Labkit, except it is available as an annual license starting from EUR620 depending on the package required. Develop your students' skills using the latest technology - with flexible and affordable access to MIKE software.

Student Labkits are free of charge licenses given to students for a specific period and for pre-agreed purposes only, including undergraduate projects, and Masters/PhD Thesis, etc. It comes as a Network License with one concurrent user and features full functionality including GPU with no size limitations.
