    SolidWorks 2017

    We have a 100-seat license for the department.  If you wish to use it off-campus, you must connect to the P&A VPN first or else the license server will not be able to be contacted. Solidworks is Windows-only so you will need a Windows virtual machine for Macs.

    Supermongo

    The Astronomy department has a volume license for Supermongo.

    MATLAB (MathWorks)

    We do not have a volume license for MATLAB at this time. However you can access this software via http://www.library.ucla.edu/clicc/software as long as you're connected wirelessly to Eduroam and can login using your standard UCLA logon ID. You'll also likely want to use Firefox with pop-up blocker turned off; the Software Shortcut option doesn't work with Chrome, and Safari is problematical.

    AutoCAD

    AutoDesk licensing is handled on an individual/group level. There is no Department-wide initiative. Campus has an agreement in place and you can get more info (& purchase) via UCLA Software Central:
