Special Coursework License

The special coursework license is intended to facilitate the use of Igor Pro as a teaching tool and to introduce students to Igor Pro. The coursework license is available for $125 under the following conditions:

  • The software may be used only by students and only for assigned coursework. It may not be used for research.
  • All technical support must go through a single individual who is usually the instructor/ registered licensee.

The Special Coursework Discount is available only directly from WaveMetrics.

Contact our sales department to purchase a coursework license.

We request that coursework licensees provide a brief description of their use of Igor Pro for coursework and a link to the course's web page. However, this is not required.

Licenses For Research Purposes

The coursework license is intended for assigned coursework, not for research.

WaveMetrics offers an inexpensive student personal purchase copy of Igor Pro which students can purchase with their own personal funds for their own personal work when their use of Igor extends beyond assigned coursework.

We also offer flexible multi-user licenses for situations where the coursework license does not fit.
