Welcome to the College of Engineering Computing Resources page at Tennessee Technological University University! We have various resources to accommodate a wide range of computing requirements. These resources are briefly described below along with some additional information. Please be aware that since Fall 2014, due to the college-wide usage of MoLE-SI (see MoLE-SI section below); the College of Engineering at TTU is requiring each student to have a portable computing device.
- User Accounts
User accounts are needed to access various computing resources in/off campus. TTU accounts are assigned to each individual user, however, due to the nature of various activities in our college other accounts might be assigned as well.
For TTU user account related questions, please refer to this page for useful information.
For other types of accounts or additional information please contact Marbin Pazos-Revilla (mpazos at tntech.edu)
- Wireless Access to TTU Network
ITS maintains the wireless and network infrastructure. Information about how to access the wireless network in campus can be found at https://www.tntech.edu/its/computing/bradford-agent
TTU provides a VPN solution which will allow users to connect to our campus IT resources while away allowing seamless access with high levels of security. The VPN is only for use off-campus, and will not work when you are already connected to the campus network
To get started, please download and read the documentation
Users with administrative rights on their personal computer please download the VPN client relevant to your Operating System here.
Engineering software can be accessed by major depending on what computing lab facility is used, as described below. Faculty and students can also obtain copies of engineering or general software for home use. The list of software and pricing can be found at https://www.tntech.edu/its/itspurchases/softwareathome
- Computing Labs
MoLE-SI (Mobile Learning Environment and Systems Infrastructure) has been active in the college of Engineering since 2009. MoLE-SI has shown to impact students’ active learning abilities and provides a mobile, dynamic, and collaborative environment for instruction, where engineering software can be accessed on-demand remotely or on campus.
- General Labs
ITS maintain several computer labs for your use. These labs and computing facilities include modern desktop machines that allow access to coursework software that is common to various disciplines in campus. These facilities are primarily located in the Library and Clement Hall. For additional information please refer to https://webapps.tntech.edu/its/labs/lablist.aspx and https://www.tntech.edu/its/computing/
- Specialized Labs
The College of Engineering in conjunction with ITS maintain several computer labs for your use. These labs and computing facilities include modern desktop machines and/or thin-clients that allow access to the software needed for specialized CoE coursework. These facilities are located in Clement Hall 4th floor, Prescott Hall 4th floor, Brown Hall 207. Additional computer resources like computer cluster and other facilities are available to accommodate research and other specific computing services.
In an effort to continuously improve our technical support processes in the college of engineering our technical support staff have implemented a centralized technical support ticketing system that faculty and staff can use to submit their technical support requests. The centralized ticketing system makes the support more effective and transparent to the end user.
In order to submit your technical support requests, please use the following link using TTU account credentials.
