Facilities and Resources
Our department has exclusive access to a state-of-the-art instructional lab. This lab is equipped with 31 Windows-based computers, an instructor station, a projector, and a SmartBoard. This classroom allows faculty to teach new technology using hands-on techniques. When not in use, this classroom serves as an open lab for our students. We have a Linux lab available for your use and we track the latest trends in open source software development. This lab is run entirely by computer science majors, giving our students hands-on experience administering Linux-based PCs. The Linux Lab is also equipped with a state-of-the-art Colfax graphics supercomputer with two Tesla Graphics Units, each containing 240 processor cores. The machine is approximately 125 times as powerful as a standard workstation. Available only to students within our department, this graphic lab serves as a great place to do homework or to collaborate on student projects. Faculty also use this lab for instruction. The Department is a member of the Microsoft Developer's Network Academic Alliance, allowing us to provide you many MS software products for coursework at little or no cost. We are also a member of the Sun Academic Alliance which provides free training and guidance to you if you're interested in certification in the areas of Java programming and UNIX system administration.
