The UNIX labs are equipped with state-of-the-art Sun Ultra workstations running Solaris. These labs provide software for graphics, image processing, numerical computation and logic design, and a variety of programming languages (such as C/C++. Java, Fortran, Scheme, and Assembly). The labs also provide database development environments, such as Oracle and MySQL.
The PC labs utilize the Microsoft Windows XP environment, and provide a wide range of software for both students and faculty.
The Computer Architecture Lab is equipped with high-end IBM and Sun workstations. Students use VHDL to program reconfigurable boards supplied by Altera.
The Image Processing Lab features dual-processor Dell workstations with high-end Nvidia Quadro 4 graphics boards, running Linux.
The Network Protocol Lab is equipped with the latest networking devices, such as CICSO switches, routers, ATM switches and a network traffic simulator/analyzer. Also deployed are high-end Sun Ultra workstations and video capture capability for studying video multicasting.
The Operations System Lab is equipped with Sun Blade workstations.
The Parallel Programming Lab provides a small Beowulf cluster based on Red Hat Linux. This lab provides students and faculty with a prototyping environment for development and study of high performance computing.
The Computer Engineering Laboratory is designed to give students the capacity to perform high-level microcontroller programming and virtual emulation. The laboratory consists of 5 stations (2 people per station) each with: a PC; a Motorola Microcontroller Development System, a Motorola Emulator and specialized assembler software and C Cross compilers. In addition, the laboratory has a Hewlett Packard 16-channel logic analyzer and assorted electronics components for laboratory exploration.
The Computer Aided Design Laboratory facility has twenty-six Dell Dimension 8200 series computers, a Dell PowerEdge 2500 server, two HP Color LaserJet 4600dn printers, an HP LaserJet 5100 printer, and a wide-screen monitor. The Department also has a Multimedia Distance Learning Facility which includes twenty Pentium PC’s, document camera, LCD projector and whiteboard. In addition, the Department maintains twenty-seven Sun Unix workstations and sixteen Pentium PC’s in its other three computer laboratories. These systems are equipped with mechanism design, mathematics, finite element, boundary element and computer-aided manufacturing software, including PRO-ENGINEER, Solid Works, Think Design, LS-DYNA, ABAQUS, MathCAD, MATLAB, AutoCAD, FLUENT, NASTRAN-4D and MasterCAM.
A modern Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) Laboratory facility contains four CNC machining centers and a computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM) system, together with industrial grade robots: two articulate arm types and one SCARA.
