New Brunswick/Piscataway Undergraduate Catalog 2005-2007 School of Engineering Facilities Computers  


Computer facilities are available at the university, school, and departmental levels. Rutgers University Computing Services (RUCS) manages the facilities and services offered at the university level that are described elsewhere in this catalog and at School of Engineering facilities are managed by Engineering Computing Services (ECS), Each School of Engineering department also maintains its own computer laboratories that provide specialized software for the use of its students and faculty. All facilities are connected to RUNet via the high-speed engineering backbone.

On the New Brunswick/Piscataway campuses there are 14 public computer laboratories or hubs provided by RUCS, including the Busch Campus Computing Center that is near the Engineering complex and the university facility most used by engineering students. The Busch campus facility offers over 200 varied workstations including Dell PCs operating Windows 2000 and Power Macintosh G4s. Scanning and printing services and a wide range of software are also provided. The Busch campus facility also contains the Digital Media Lab, featuring state-of-the-art microcomputing graphics technology.

Engineering Computing Services maintains two major instructional laboratories within the Engineering complex. These include the Design, Simulation, and Visualization (DSV) Lab and the Engineering Information Technology (EIT) Lab. Each facility is available for instruction, research, and general student use. The DSV Lab consists of 60 Dell dual boot Windows/Linux workstations. It is also equipped with a smart board projection system with a color projector, and a variety of software including MATLAB and ProEngineer. The EIT Lab consists of 34 1 GHz Dell computers running Windows 2000 and Linux. It also has a smart board projection system and a video component that allows several modes of operation, including linkage with a 10 CPU Linux cluster to produce a high resolution, multiprojector system for scientific modeling in real time.
