Computing Laboratory

Corley 314

Departmental computing facilities for undergraduate students are housed in Room 314 and are one of the primary means of helping students learn to use modern engineering tools, communicate using written and oral methods, and to analyze critically scientific data and conduct engineering analysis. The computing lab was moved from a previous location between the Fall 2003 and Spring 2004 semesters to provide additional space for more computers. This 736 square foot laboratory has 27 computer workstations and two laser printers along with multimedia podium for teaching.  Students in BSEN courses have access to the computing lab 24 hours per day using their student ID card. Students in all BSEN courses use this facility.

The computers are equipped with the standard Microsoft Office software products. Computer-aided design software includes AutoDesk's Inventor parametric modeling software, WoodWorks Design Office suite, and FluidSim hydraulic and pneumatic simulation software. Geospatial software includes Trimble Pathfinder Office and ESRI ArcView and ArcGIS. Other software is available for hydrologic analysis and erosion prediction.

A large digitizing table, wide format inkjet plotter, and color laser printer are currently located on the second floor of the Corley Building in the area where faculty offices are located. Students in the computing laboratory have network access to print to these additional printers during regular office hours.
