AMPL for New Graduates
We make it simple to get your optimization career off the ground.
AMPL is dedicated to bringing mathematical optimization to the next generation of modelers and developers.
What is AMPL for New Graduates?
The AMPL for New Graduates program is a long standing offer of free use of AMPL and solvers. As you graduate from your undergraduate or graduate programs, we would like to offer you a free 1-year AMPL license, with nine commercial solvers.
You choose your solvers
You must have recently graduated from an undergraduate or graduate program in mathematical optimization to qualify for the New Graduate AMPL and solver programs.
Your license and work will not disappear. You will, however, be required to begin purchasing AMPL and desired commercial solvers at the standard AMPL rates. We now offer both subscription and yearly purchase (plus annual maintenance) for your convenience on all AMPL and solver license options.
See our commercial pricing page, and contact us to set up your license for continued use. Also, check out the Community Edition for free AMPL and open source solvers (with 30-day free trials of commercial solvers).
You will receive a single-user license that will be bound to one user login – but your team can benefit from the use of your AMPL license as long as you only have one person logged in at a time.
You can learn about the terms and conditions for the new graduates license here.
