Microsoft Imagine is an annual membership program offered by Microsoft for departments that teach and utilize technology such as computer science, engineering, and information systems departments. The membership provides a complete, inexpensive solution to keep academic labs, faculty and students on the leading edge of technology.

With this membership, we have the latest development tools, operating systems, server software, documentation, and technical references at our fingertips. In addition, our students have complete access to these tools on their personal computers and in our departments’ labs.

Primary benefits of a Microsoft Imagine Software Subscription:

  • A special license amendment that enables departments to load any number of copies of the products in this MSDN subscription on their lab machines for instructional and research use.
  • Students taking at least one course in the department may load the software on their personal machines for use in their coursework and personal projects.
