CSC/ECE Laptop Initiative for Fall 2013

The departments of Computer Science (CSC) and Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) are requiring laptops in many classes beginning in the Fall 2012 semester. We are moving toward a cloud-based solution that allows our laboratory environment to be available anywhere at anytime and enables and encourages new approaches to teaching.

Those students currently owning a laptop must consider following specifications for hardware and software as described here for a new purchase that should last most of their undergraduate career. It is not a mandate to purchase a new computer at this time. At a minimum, the student's laptop must be able to support a current operating system (Windows 7 or greater, Mac OS X 10.6 or greater, Linux), an office automation suite (Microsoft Office 2007 or greater, LibreOffice), a development environment (Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, Cgywin, MinGW, XCode, Eclipse, etc), and a virtualization environment such as VirtualBox.

For more details on hardware, software, and services please see here.
