Computing Facilities

The Department of Computer Science hosts more than 40 research labs with access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; 2 open labs for graduate students; and a 128-seat open access lab for undergraduate students. 

facilitiesThe labs consist of state-of-the-art, high-performance workstations and high-end PCs, all connected via gigabit Ethernet switches with a redundant fiber uplink to provide fast access to the campus network and the Internet. Nine classrooms and one large lecture hall with the latest computer and audio-visual equipment are available.  Academic coursework, project, and compute systems are comprised of Linux x86_64, Windows Server, and Solaris 10 executing on a collection of physical servers and virtual server private clouds. The servers are connected via fiber channel and iSCSI to a thin-provisioned 14TB 3PAR mesh-active storage array. The University library has on hand a large collection of computer science journals and publications.
