Microsoft Developer Network Academic Alliance

The Gallogly College of Engineering partners with the Microsoft Developer Network to provide Engineering students, faculty, and staff with access to a wide range of Microsoft products for download and installation to labs and personal computers.

The goal of the MSDN Academic Alliance is:

  • To make it easier and less expensive for academic institutions to obtain Microsoft developer tools, platforms, and servers for instructional and research purposes.
  • To build a community of instructors who can share curriculum and other learning resources to support the use of these technologies.


Students, faculty, and staff are automatically enrolled in the program at the start of each semester.  Log-in information is sent to new students through e-mail when they are added to the program.  The e-mail provides a link and a password to access the site.  Your e-mail address serves as your username.

The Software Center is available at here.  You can get support for the MSDNAA program by sending an e-mail to or in person at the Information Commons Service Center.
