Educational Licensing Program

Ideal for teaching geometric road design.

The easiest civil design software you’ll ever use...or teach.

Unlike many other civil design software options, our products focus on engineering over drafting. This enables educators to easily demonstrate the principles of geometric road design in a software environment.

Within a matter of hours, you can get your classroom up and running. These are some resources available to help you learn & teach:

  • Training materials and examples
  • Training videos & webinars
  • Software support & training for educators

Students and approved academic institutions can use Softree software for free.*
