Computing

Computing Resources Overview

The computing infrastructure supports faculty, staff, graduate students and visitors with a variety of instructional and research applications. It allows intensive statistical calculations and analysis. 
All department machines are connected to a local area network, with access to the campus-wide area network and to the Internet. A large-capacity Linux disk array acts as the department file server. Additional server-class machines are reserved for long term and floating point intensive computations. Most Linux-based servers and user workstations are installed with the Ubuntu linux distribution, and as a result, we have a unified, well maintained and easy to manage platform for the entire department.

For each department member, personal computing accounts are provided.

Each staff, faculty member, or visitor has at least one workstation for his or her academic and research purposes. Aside from multiple workstations, the lab includes a high-resolution color scanner and web development software. Laser printers are installed for the faculty and in the computer lab and a color laser printer (in South Hall 5607A) adds new possibilities for slides and presentations.
