There are several computer lab/classrooms designed to provide the specialized support needed by engineering students.
COEN’s Information Technology department administers these labs and consists of four full-time System Administrators who are responsible for the support and installation of hardware and software.
Instructors may fill out the software request form and submit to the IT department if additional changes in a lab are required. Email submissions may be initiated at any time to the group:
Changes may not be addressed until there is a break in use of the systems, however. All computer labs are heavily scheduled throughout semesters, including traditional break periods with outreach activities and/or summer courses.
See information posted regarding system and computer lab issues on our IT news page.

Computer Science Tutoring Center (two locations) – ENGR 111 (main campus), The Kount Tutoring Center (downtown) City Center Plaza 241
see Beowulf Cluster
***Only students currently enrolled in the Computer Science Program at the College of Engineering may have access to the Metageek/Onyx2 systems.
CS Tutoring Centers are available to students enrolled in Computer Science courses, but available to non-CS degree seeking students.
For all engineering students:
ENGR 238 and MEC 103 Computer Labs are configured as dual-boot Windows and Linux labs.
The following are classrooms (not computer labs) and have both a Windows and Linux console available for instruction:
Generic lab accounts such as ENGR212, ENGR238, MEC103 are still available in COEN labs. A reminder on the security enhancements for these generic accounts:
· The accounts will not be available from 9pm to 6am. During this time frame students, faculty and staff may login to any of the lab workstations using their own BroncoWeb credentials.
· Each lab’s generic account will only be accessible in the specific lab it was created for (ex: ET212 will only be available in the ET212 lab).
BroncoPrint is Available in ENGR 212, ENGR 238 and MEC 103 Windows LABS
