What provisions do the Unreal Engine EULAs make for educational use?
Besides all of the free, friendly, and accessible terms for general use of Unreal Engine, academic institutions are authorized to install Unreal Engine on any of their computers (e.g. in computer labs), and all users of those computers can access the engine.
What does this mean for students who wish to release Unreal Engine projects commercially?
Students who choose to ship their class projects as commercial games or other interactive off-the-shelf products are under the same EULA terms as other Unreal Engine developers. Successful games that make more than $1,000,000 USD in lifetime gross revenues are obligated to pay a 5% royalty to Epic Games.
Why is Unreal Engine especially well-suited for computer science programs?
Because UE4 includes full C++ source, students have 100% visibility into the workings of one of the world’s leading-edge software projects. Students can learn from the design of Unreal Engine, and carry out their research in areas such as graphics, simulation, physics, and computer vision by extending the engine, while leveraging all of its existing capabilities. This is an amazing way to build real-world experience and a strong resume!
Can I create official documentation and textbooks?
Yes. We'd love to hear about any contributions you'd like to make. Please utilize our resources and share information with the community. You can kick off discussions about this on the forums, chat with us on Twitter, and attend our weekly Twitch stream.
