Computer Laboratories in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences
A variety of computer laboratories are available to provide support for CIS programs
and student coursework. Many of these facilities are designated as Teaching Labs where
faculty work with students to achieve the overall goals and objectives of the department’s
many computer lab intensive courses.
Each Teaching Laboratory hosts 30 student computer stations plus one instructor’s
station. All PCs are outfitted with the software needed for our students to successfully
complete their course requirements. Like the smart classrooms in 7800 York Road, the
instructor’s station in all Teaching Labs will also consist of a computer projection
system so that CIS faculty can provide instructional presentations for their students.
Several computer laboratories are designated as “Project Labs,” most notably the CIS
Graduate Project Lab and the CIS Undergraduate Labs where undergraduate and grad students
will have the dedicated facilities needed to complete coursework outside of their
regularly scheduled class times. Many of the computers in these labs maintain special
hardware and software setups insuring that students have the precise tools needed
to complete a variety of special projects geared toward their coursework.
The YR-403, YR-402, and YR-407 CIS Project Labs are restricted to those students currently
enrolled in CIS department courses. Please always feel free to see the CIS Lab Assistant
if you have any problems or questions.
Other more specialized departmental facilities include the CIS Security Lab, a Linux
Projects Lab, The Universal Usability Lab, The Doctoral Lab, Special Project Labs
for Students and an Academic Achievement Lab which hosts the CIS Tutoring Help-Desk.
