Other Resources

PTC/ProEngineer/Creo CAD software (free student copy - Windows only):
Creo Parametric 5.0 (aka. ProEngineer)
When you get to the version selection menu at this link, click on "Creo 5.0 for Windows" (NOT Creo 6.0 !!)
There is no requirement to download this software, as it is available in the EWS labs; but it will be convenient to have access on your own computer to complete lab assignments in your own time and to work on your design projects.

OR

Use Citrix for remote access to Creo 5.0 on lab workstations:
Link to Citrix Service information
You can log into your EWS account, access your lab EWS files, and run Creo Parametric 5.0 remotely using this service
Supports Windows, Mac OSX, EWS Linux, Android and iOS
