- Computer Labs
- TCCW 117 Lab
The Computer Science Department has a wide range of computing facilities. In our departmental lab, we feature 24 Dell desktop machines. These machines are Dell Optiplex GX270 featuring Pentium 4 2.80 GHz processors running Windows XP Professional.
We also have an Ultra Enterprise 450 that runs UNIX developmental applications for the Computer Science students. All Computer Science students receive email and login accounts on this server. Hera serves as a DHCP server, in addition to housing student email accounts and webpages.
The University features a 100 Mbit/second network connection, which is freely accessible in our department lab as well as other labs on campus and in the residence halls on campus. This allows connections to reach speeds more than 100 times faster than that of a 28.8 kbps modem.
- The Artificial Intelligence(AI) Lab
The Artificial Intelligence(AI) Laboratory is designed to be the center where research and experimentation in the various areas of AI is performed. Currently there are four Evolution brand ER1 robots there where students explore the robot's capabilities in the areas of voice recognition, sensor control, and obstacle avoidance . It is expected that other hardware/software used in other subfields of AI will be housed here in the near future.
- The Networking Lab
The networking lab is designed to give students hands-on experience related to the topics and concepts discussed in the departmental classes related to networking. It contains a collection of routers, hubs, wireless equipment and workstations. The networking lab is currently housed in STH 212.
