The department has thirteen laboratories to support teaching in the fields of software development and network technology. All laboratories are equipped with up-to-date computer hardware and software. They are interconnected through a network which is currently being enhanced to provide a Gigabit Ethernet backbone to each laboratory. In turn, this network is connected to a campus-wide network which provides access to other computing resources, including access to the Internet.
In addition, the following applications are available for teaching, project work and self-study in the computer laboratories: |Here|
The department has more than 300 PCs which are supported by a range of Linux and Window 2000 servers, together with a dedicated server for multimedia applications development. All machines are networked together forming a departmental sub-network under the campus-wide network. Students can also access the computing facilities of the College Computer Center.
