CEAS Computer Resources

May 2018

The College of Engineering and Applied Science has several computer labs available to students, some are available to all Engineering students, and others are available to students based on their home department. Students in Civil and Architectural Engineering should have access to a laptop or tablet for some department coursework.

If you choose to buy a computer, then you should purchase the best computer you can afford, so it will last your entire academic career. Many computer vendors offer student discounts, so make sure to check.

Laptops or tablets are encouraged. Wireless access is being made available around campus. The College provides wireless access near student study areas.

These are the minimum specifications you should follow (Autodesk Revit Users, Computer Science, and Computer Engineering students should use the larger specifications as minimum specifications). Revit and SolidWorks users should check the video card recommendations at the vendor’s web sites.

Approximate Cost $1,000 - $1,500
