PTC Mathcad

PTC Mathcad® has been the world-leading mathematical calculation tool since 1986 and is therefore used by more than 2 million engineers and 2000 universities across the world.

Above all, it is an Engineering Math software that allows users to perform, analyse and even share the most vital calculations in a single document. Its live mathematical notation, unit intelligence, and powerful calculation capabilities allow engineers and design teams to capture and communicate their critical design and engineering knowledge.

Moreover, this software solution certainly does what spreadsheets, word processing, presentation software, and programming applications cannot do! First of all, it brings powerful calculation capabilities into human-readable form. Most importantly, PTC Mathcad integrates these human-readable, live calculations with plots, graphs, text, and images into a single, interactive, professionally presented document. As a result, it enables design exploration, validation and verification, and the clear communication of critical engineering information. Above all, you don’t need to be an expert to read and understand PTC Mathcad documents.
