Information Technology Services


Terry Saltsman, Interim Chief Information Officer



Information Technology Services grew out of the central computer facility located in Clement Hall. The D.W. Mattson Computer Center was named in honor of Professor Dale W. Mattson, who brought the first digital computer, an IBM 650, to the University in the 1960s.

Information Technology Services provides computer resources, services, and support for instruction, research, and administration at Tennessee Technological University. Information Technology Services is divided into four sections: Academic & Client Technologies, Administrative Systems Support, Network Services and Operations and Systems Support.

A campus-wide Ethernet local area network (LAN), which uses fiber optic media, makes computing services available across campus. Wide-area networking is also available, allowing users access to the Internet.
