Laboratories

Students and Faculty have access to state-of-the art experimental and computational facilities all located within Shelby Center, the home of the College of Engineering on Auburn's main campus.  These facilities allow students to have hands-on learning experiences in their classes or as part of undergraduate or graduate research.  Faculty and graduate students can conduct experiments related to their research.

ISE Computer Labs

General Description

The ISE computer labs include a “teaching lab” with 40 student stations, one instruction station, and a ceiling-mounted projection system and a “working lab” that includes 30 student stations. The computers, printers, and network components are managed and maintained by the College of Engineering’s Engineering Network Services group.

The labs both have card-swipe door locks and are available for student and classroom use 24 hours/day.

Computer Configuration

The systems in both labs are very similar. The specifications for the majority of the systems are given below (the minor differences in configurations come primarily from repairs).

Model Dell Optiplex 755
Processor Core Duo 2.00 GHz
RAM 2 GB
Hard Drive 160 GB
Video Resolution 1280x1024
Monitor 17'' Flat-panel
