As a part of its commitment to education and research, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering supports and maintains 16 teaching labs for both undergraduate and graduate-level courses. Located within Engineering Building II on NC State University's Centennial Campus, each lab is designed for a particular topic or purpose, ranging from basic circuits or simulation to areas of research such as robotics or networking. Additionally, the department provides the very best in powerful computers, professional software, and modern electronics and equipment to meet the demands of courses and research that utilize the labs.
For additional information on the individual labs, see ECE Teaching Labs.
Unity Computer Labs
The Office of Information Technology (OIT) – NC State University's central IT operations and management organization – supports and maintains nine public computer labs across the university's main campus. These Unity Computer Labs are open to all students, faculty, and staff with active Unity accounts, and several operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Each Unity lab provides Microsoft Windows and Apple workstations, as well as public printers provided by Wolfcopy.
For more information, including schedules and lab locations, see Unity Computing Labs. All users of the university's computing resources must abide by the network and computer user policies and the Unity Computer Lab Rules.
EOS Computer Labs
Access to Eos labs is restricted to the College of Engineering. Students must be enrolled in at least one engineering course to use EOS workstations. Unlike EOS labs, Unity labs in the library and around campus can be used by all students at the University, regardless of the department or College. ITECS is responsible for the labs and operators in Daniels Hall and Engineering Building II, and all workstations in the EOS labs. WolfCopy is responsible for maintenance and support of lab printers.
Main Campus: 204 Daniels, 2408 Broughton, 106 Park Shops
Centennial Campus: 1008 & 3003 EB1, EB2 (Coming Spring 2006), 300 EGRC
A complete list of EOS labs and their hours of operation can be found on the EOS labs page. The labs are staffed and/or maintained by EOS operators
Modeled after the Office of Information Technology's Flyspace project and the Learning Commons Group Study Areas in D.H. Hill Library, Engineering Collaboratories are specially configured rooms or areas of EOS labs where students and faculty can meet to work on projects together. Designed with technology to support collaborative work and interaction, these learning spaces typically have one or two EOS workstations connected to a 42-inch plasma monitor, with network connections for individual laptops.
Engineering Collaboratories are available for reservations or walk-in usage, and are located in Daniels Hall and Mann Hall on Main Campus, and Engineering Building II on Centennial Campus. Visit Engineering Collaboratories to make reservations and find more information on collaboratory locations and assistance.
Unity kiosks, provided by the Office of Information Technology, allow you convenient access to Webmail, campus directories, the University home page, and event schedules. These stations offer an alternative to Unity labs when you simply want to check email or look up academic information from the NC State Web site.
For more information, including listings of all available kiosks on campus, see Unity Kiosks on Campus.
North Carolina State University is committed to providing an inclusive environment for all students. This commitment takes a proactive approach to providing accessibility to its information resources, including Web pages and online content.
To accommodate access to information technology resources for a student with a disability, the office of Disability Student Services (DSS) offers a range of assistive technologies and devices. Assistive technologies are a software and/ or hardware devices that accommodate functional limitations or increase functional capabilities of a person with a disability. Examples of assistive technologies used to accommodate access to computers and information resources are highlighted below.
