TracePro University Program

We are pleased that you are considering using TracePro as a teaching tool in your classroom environment.  We have created a TracePro Educational Program with the goal of promoting optics education.  We have officially named our program the TracePro University Program because we have found that our software appeals primarily to educators at the university level.  However anyone teaching an advanced science class is welcomed to join.


Please note that our TracePro University Program does not extend to research within a university.  In a research environment, you would qualify for our standard 25% university discount.  Our philosophy is that many university research projects provide deliverable items (even if that deliverable item is a research report) to customers in exchange for "grant monies". While we have no qualms about this activity, we have no desire to offer University licensing of OSLO, TracePro Bride and/or TracePro in this type of environment. We believe that offering low cost versions of OSLO, and/or TracePro only to classroom environments helps us to avoid what we believe to be inappropriate research or commercial use of our software.


To qualify for our TracePro University Program, you will be asked to:

  1. Provide a copy of your course syllabus or course description for the courses where TracePro will be used.  This could be a printed brochure or official description printed on university or department letterhead.  Electronic files will also be accepted, as will HTML pages from the university web site.

  2. Return filled out and signed  TracePro University Licensing and Policy statement. The policy portion of this statement identifies the responsible party that will be using TracePro in the classroom and outlines our program guidelines. The licensing portion gives us an indication of how many licenses you need for the duration of the course.  We offer only network hardware keys under this program.

  3. At the end of the course, submit a short report indicating how TracePro was used, suggestions for future updates and reports of bugs that were encountered.  Reports typically range in length from a few paragraphs to several pages.  Longer submissions are helpful to us to refine the University Program in the future.  Final reports must be filed before TracePro can be renewed for any subsequent courses in the university.
