TU Delft COMSOL licence?

Hi all,

I’m trying to learn to use COMSOL (never too old to learn!) but have run into a curious problem: to create any kind of model (to even use the “create rectangle” button!) I need to have access to the DESIGN module licence.

However, according to the servicepunt, the entire university has only ONE design licence!!!???!!!???

Is this really true? If so, it basically means that the university site licence is useless and all research groups have to buy their own licence?


I heard from Simon that this is only with Comsol 5.5 (which I happened to choose to install) and not Comsol 5.4…will try a 3.7 GB download to find out…

another update: this morning, they upgraded the licences to the 2021 ones, and now there are 25 design licences for 5.5
