There are many options out there for your next project. We have a list below of options that are available on campus as well as some options you can download for free. If you'd like a list of recommendations by type of project, visit our software pages by:
Free & Open Source Software (FOSS) is licensed for you to use for free (no strings attached) and download to your personal computer. These three programs are installed on campus computers and in the Makerspace (third floor of the library) as well.
Freemium software is free to use and sometimes download but there are some strings attached. Some of these programs are available as web applications (you don't have to download anything) but be warned that some may be in early phases and are free today but may begin charging fees in the future. Some freemium software comes with a non-removable watermark over your work but none of the following have that restriction.
