I will use Maple in my master thesis at a company. Can I use the university license?

No, the university's academic Maple license does generally not allow for use at a company. If you are an externally employed doctoral student (industridoktorand) or a student doing the master thesis at a company, and need to use Maple, the company will have to provide for the commercial Maple license required.
