There are many resources to accommodate a wide range of computing requirements here at Tech. Below you will find a brief descrpion of the available resources 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 Tech is requiring each student to have a portable computing device.
User accounts are needed to access various computing resources on/off campus. Tech
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 Tech user account related questions, please refer to Protecting your Passwords.
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. Visit Pricing for Home Use for the complete list.
The College of Engineering is currently participating in the Mathworks Total Student Headcount (TSH) program which allows students to download and use a free copy of the latest version of Matlab with a variety of available toolboxes. If you are a student and would like to take advantage of this great opportunity please follow the instructions for Matlab TSH program.
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.

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 and 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.
