Wolfram Technology System for Research Universities

Bring the power of Wolfram tools to education and research across your campus

For more than a quarter of a century, Wolfram has been proud to support education and research at top universities around the world. Initially most popular in departments such as mathematics and physics, Wolfram technology use has gradually expanded through science and engineering, and across campuses.

Now—especially with Wolfram|Alpha and the Wolfram Language—Wolfram has dramatically expanded its offerings for research universities, bringing the power of deep but easy-to-use computation even to areas of education and research that have never been able to benefit from computation before.

The Wolfram Technology System comprehensively delivers both classic and new Wolfram technologies to researchers, educators, and students across campus.
