Software Tools

The working group runs a couple of software packages, some are commercial licenses were awarded to MTU for free. Others we purchased with an academic discount. Some software is used through a university licensing agreement. And we are trying to use as many open source packages as possible. We are also developing software since 30 years for specialized applications.
