Engineering Applications

This CD/DVD/USB aims to contain versions of most of the software that an engineer requires. Most of the included applications are open-source (licensed under a free software license such as the GPL) and sometimes do not have all the functionality of a commercial package but are still very useful tools. The collection of software is continually being enhanced/supplemented and new support material is being added (e.g. a CFD package will potentially be added in the next release).

Note - This version of the system does not yet contain all the material. Items indicated (tbc) are "To Be Completed"
