Microsoft Imagine Program

The College of Engineering licenses Microsoft’s Imagine Premium for students currently enrolled in the College of Engineering. Only software listed on Microsoft’s Imagine site is available through this program, and it is intended for instructional and non-commercial research use ONLY. Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) is not covered under this license (see UK’s download site for information on Microsoft Office for UK students).

You can use Imagine software in your academic classes, and on projects related directly to your classes or research. You cannot use any software obtained through this program with the intention of making money off the end product (i.e. you can’t sell the programs you have written using this software). Only Engineering and Computer Science students, or non-Engineering/non-CS students currently enrolled in an Engineering or Computer Science course that is using this software are eligible. Software usage guidelines are available on Microsoft’s Imagine site.

How this works

After Fall and Spring semester add/drop closes, Engineering Computing Services (ECS) submits a list of Engineering students to the Imagine web store. An email is then sent to your @uky.edu from kivuto.com with instructions on completing the registration process. Only after you have completed registration will you have access to your account, and be able to download software and license keys. License keys are unique and will only unlock one product – DO NOT share your license keys. This is fully explained in the “Help” section of the Imagine site once you have logged in.
