There are several College of Engineering computer lab/classrooms designed to provide the specialized support needed by Engineering students.
The College’s Information Technology department supports these labs and consists of four full-time System Administrators who are responsible for the support and installation of hardware and software for each lab.
Instructors can fill out the software request form and submit it to the IT department if the software they need in a lab is currently not an available option. Email submissions can also be made at any time to the group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See information posted regarding COEN system and COEN Lab issues on our IT news page.

Note: ET110 and ET103 are not maintained by the College of Engineering. All software requests for these classrooms must be made through OIT.
LAB Account Hours
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).
