SCIA Engineer is offered in several Editions tailored to the needs of specific groups of users. Each Edition offers a set of features that are typical for the target group of users. The Concept, Professional and Expert Editions focus on analysis and design. The Structural Edition is a special Edition for engineers who specialise in modelling and interoperability. Moreover, any Edition can be extended by separate additional options.
