CPT Department students can download FREE software to use in their course from Microsoft and VMware.

Microsoft’s new Azure For Education Dev Tools website provides our students with thousands of dollars’ worth of free Microsoft software. The VMware Academic Webstore provides 12 month free academic licenses and downloads for major VMware software and training tools.

All of this software is free to students in selected CPT or IST classes ONLY.
