The EDC is keen to develop software tools as an integral part of its research programme, both to support the research and to provide effective tools for industry. Historically, the EDC has been very successful with its contribution to the development of the Cambridge Engineering Selector, now marketed by a spin-off company, Granta Design. More recent developments include the creation of advanced CAD tools for architects, optimisation tools for structural design and assessment tools to support Inclusive Design.
