Computational Engineering International (CEI) announced today that Mississippi State University is the first institution to license the company's EnSight visualization software through its new and flexible academic licensing options. The new pricing options provide qualified academic institutions with an EnSight license for either a specific course or for the entire campus. EnSight is an industry-leading extreme visualization tool for the scientific and engineering community, and is used by researchers worldwide in a wide variety of industries and research areas.

"Our new class and campus academic licenses offer universities EnSight's industry-leading visualization capabilities through specially priced plans that respond to the needs of academia," said Darin McKinnis, CEI's vice president of marketing and sales. "And we're particularly pleased to see our first academic license go to Mississippi State University, where EnSight will serve an impressive variety of fields and disciplines at three of the school's computational research centers."

Mississippi State University's campus license will cover four of the research centers that are part of the University's High Performance Computing Collaboratory (HPC2). The centers include the Computational Simulation and Design Center (SimCenter); the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS); the GeoResources Institute (GRI); and the Center for Computational Sciences (CCS). As part of the HPC2, these centers are involved in research that advances the state of the art in computational science and engineering using high-performance computing for applications ranging from aerospace to geospatial technologies.

The decision to purchase a campus license was prompted in part by the need for a commercially supported post-processing tool that would serve as a standard throughout the research facilities. Formerly, the University relied on an open-source application. The new license includes EnSight, EnSight Gold, and EnSight DR.
