The SCS Computer Lab
The SCS Computer Lab offers computer hardware, software and work space to all students, regardless of major, on a walk-in basis. Although configured to support independent work, the Lab is staffed by a friendly team of students capable of orienting users to lab operations and answering general questions.

The SCS Learning Center
The SCS Learning Center complements the Lab and
Service Desk by offering training
and consulting services, as well as special equipment and software for poster printing, scanning, digital photography, digital videography, graphics and multimedia production, and presentation rehearsal. As an integral part of the OTS Technology Training team, SCS offers workshops on campus standard applications and systems for all members of the TU community. For students whose needs exceed the workshops solution, SCS offers individualized consulting.
The SCS Studio
The SCS Studio is an ideal working and
learning space for audio/video production
and active presentation rehearsal. It is intended for students of all experience levels, from media production majors looking for a place to work independently to less experienced students with little more than a desire to create and a willingness to learn. Visit the Studio page for information on available software and hardware, reserving and borrowing resources, and getting assistance with new and unfamiliar tools.
In addition, SCS provides OMR (Scantron) scanning and report generation for tests and surveys administered university-wide, custom form definitions for specialized surveys, and coordination for student course evaluation processing. To request services, send us an e-mail message.
