Account Levels

A guide on the different types of accounts and their suitability

SkyCiv offers a range of accounts based on your needs – between free usage to enterprise accounts, and everywhere in-between, making Structural Engineering software more accessible than ever before. This range of accounts will cover all of your structural engineering software needs and can signed up with contract pricing, or month-to-month.

Free Account

The SkyCiv Free Account has limitations on software functionality, structure size, file storage and is generally suited to students and engineers testing out or briefly using the platform. The software gives you a preview of the full capabilities of our modules, while still providing some value and usage. The Free Account can be upgraded to any of our paid plans at anytime. Paid subscriptions are demoted to free accounts when they are cancelled.

Level of Support

Limited to technical support and account access issues.

Student Account

Students can now access powerful analysis software for their studies under a deeply discounted Student subscription. This account is offered as both Flexible (cancel at anytime) or under a contract (6 months) to use throughout their semester. Students receive access to the following software:

  • Full featured analysis: SkyCiv Beam, S3D, Section Builder
  • Standalone Design Software: Both integrated and standalone connection, foundation, reinforced concrete, wind and member design software with above design standards

Student Activation

Student Accounts require activation via a student email address with a registered university. After subscribing and logging in for the first time, the platform will prompt you to verify your student email. If your email domain is not registered please email us with either (1) a copy of your active student ID or (2) send an email from your student email and our friendly SkyCiv support team will manually activate your account.
