Clay N. Hixson Student Success Center
There are many resources to accommodate a wide range of computing requirements here at Tech. Below you will find a brief description of the available resources along with some additional information.
The College of Engineering at Tech is requiring each student to have a portable computing device. You will find the Requirements for Entry Level Student Computers here.
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.
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.
Request technical support through IT Help Desk using Tech account credentials.
