PTC Mathcad Prime is purpose-built software for engineering math. Engineering calculations are too important and complex to entrust to a spreadsheet and that’s why engineers choose PTC Mathcad Prime as their calculation tool. The skills you develop while using PTC Mathcad Student Edition will be immediately transferable to the professional world.
Mathcad is the single solution for showing, solving, and securing your essential engineering calculations and design intent. The live mathematical notation, units intelligence, and powerful calculation capabilities—presented within an easy-to-use interface—allow engineers and design teams to capture and communicate their design and engineering knowledge. Those outside engineering will appreciate that interactive calculations, graphs, and images fit in one worksheet that everybody can read.
PTC Mathcad Prime calculates results and communicates ideas at the same time, allowing you to present your work with plots, graphs, text, and images in a single professionally formatted document—it couldn’t be easier.
With the latest release you can more efficiently share your design calculations as your IP is easily readable by anyone and lives in one place. With new content protection capabilities, you can be sure that your sensitive design calculations are only shared with those who need it and protected from those who don’t.

The PTC Mathcad interface combines live, standard mathematical notation with text and graphs.
This provides area protection and locking so that you control the degree of access and the visibility you want others to have.
It’s quick and easy to embed material from third party applications in your Mathcad worksheet, as well as copy and paste multiple regions of a worksheet into MS Word.
Equation wrapping offers more control over the presentation and legibility of calculations.
Solve your complex systems of equations without performing linear algebra or matrix manipulations.
Use familiar programming operators (for-loop, while-loop, if-then-else, etc.) to define functions of any complexity.
Don’t “do it yourself.” Mathcad includes built-in functions for all these purposes independent of industry.
