Mathcad is desktop productivity tool for scientists and engineers.
You can use Mathcad to perform, document and share calculation and design work. The unique Mathcad visual format and easy-to-use scratchpad interface integrate standard mathematical notation, text and graphs in a single worksheet, making Mathcad ideal for knowledge capture, calculation reuse and collaboration.
Mathcad is available to current VCU faculty, staff and students on the App2Go Citrix Server.
- Five (5) concurrent use licenses of MathCad are available for use by VCU researchers on the App2Go Server.
Using a Windows, Mac or Linux computer, you are able to access MathCad via a browser window. Although MathCad runs on the App2Go Server, it appears to be running on your PC.
