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 to the group are welcome:

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 additional information regarding HPC resources at the college.
