Engineering Computing Center

Fall 2020

The ECC labs will be open for the semester but with reduced hours to accommodate the additional disinfecting and cleaning that facilities will be performing. College of Engineering students may use labs as long as they mutually respect the use of that space by multiple individuals, follow 6-ft. social distancing guidelines, wear a mask at all times, use the provided cleaning materials to sanitize their learning space, and immediately vacate the room when they discover the start of a scheduled class. Campus facilities such as the ECC will remain open for student use after the fall break.

About the ECC

The Engineering Computing Center is for the use of all College of Engineering majors/minors, and for anyone currently taking an engineering or computer science class in CoEN. The ECC has Windows 10 computers located in rooms SEM 231-A, B, C, D, SEM 321, WPEB 100, and 101. Each machine has a wide variety of specialized engineering software and a Xubuntu 14.04 virtual machine. Some labs are used as teaching laboratories and are open for general use only when classes are not being held in the rooms. Please see the Engineering Student Resources Canvas page for the ECC's regular hours and information about after-hours and weekend lab access.
