Open Computer Laboratory

This lab has a floor space of 1,165 ft2. It houses 45 computers for students to use to do homework and to access the Internet. The computers are loaded with all the teaching software packages that the Department has so that the students can use them at all times. The lab is open all day long and a work-study student is on duty to provide computer assistance. The course EN 201 Engineering Graphics is taught in this lab. The built-in overhead data projector can be used by the instructor while the students use the computers that are there. Other classes that involve instructions on the use of professional software packages such as CIV 370 Water Resources Engineering (using HEC-HMS and HEC-RAS), are also occasionally taught in this lab to make use of computers for  hands-on practice during lectures.
