Welcome to the Engineering Computing Center!
The Engineering Computing Center is a cluster of lab spaces in the Heafey building that provides primary computing resources for instructional and research-related activities in the School of Engineering and STEM.
The Engineering Computing Center currently has 10 computer labs:
- 5 Microsoft Windows 10 labs
- 5 Centos Linux labs
In addition, Engineering Computing Center staff provide support and access to systems in 10 departmental labs. These systems support engineering courses with computing lab components and provide high-end systems for student use on course assignments and projects.
The Engineering Computing Center provides a wide variety of industry-standard technical software packages and hosts a variety of programming language compilers. All students in engineering classes are given accounts to log into any of the engineering labs.
