The Free AIMMS Academic License is an unrestricted license for academic people (students, teachers, professors, and researchers) to use AIMMS at no charge. If you are an academic person, you can use our modeling environment with its friendly IDE and all the extensive capabilities for model diagnostics, solver tuning, data connectivity, visualization, advanced algorithmic capabilities, data and case management features, and more.

CPLEX, CP Optimizer, CONOPT, CBC, IPOPT, etc… All included

Even better, the Free AIMMS Academic License includes unrestricted world-class solvers with no extra installation required, and at no charge. This means you can solve almost any problem and do comparative analysis to see which solver works best for your models using: CPLEX, CP Optimizer, CONOPT, ODH-CPLEX, MINOS, SNOPT, AOA, PATH, XA, CBC and IPOPT. For GUROBI, we have a link available, so you can connect your own GUROBI license with AIMMS. To incorporate data uncertainty in your models, we include the add-on for Robust Optimization, together with the currently included options for Scenario Analysis and Stochastic Programming.
