Labs, Hardware & Software

Labs
We offer two type of rooms:
Pod Rooms - 
A unique classroom layout organized around a central octagonal casement. This arrangement combines a natural focus on interactive teaching materials with a seating capacity of 2-3 students per station to foster collaborative and self-paced student explorations. We recently modified one pod to allow a better view of a projected image (3rd picture on the right).
Four of the pod rooms are equipped with a projector/Smartboard. The pod-rooms are with 18-24 computers, and a maximum capacity of 36 students.


Class Rooms -
Traditional layout, with desks arranged such that students are able to view a projected image on a white-board. 
Two rooms are with - 24 PC Windows computers and a maximum capacity of 24 students.
One room is with -  26 computers, dual boot Windows/Linux, & 3D capabilities. This lab serves both undergrad and grad courses, with priority to graduate & to Chemistry & Biochemistry courses.
One room with 32 PC computers, and a maximum capacity of 40 students. Physical Sciences courses are given a first priority in reserving this lab, as long as reservations are made no later than a week before the beginning of a given quarter (no later than Dec 20th for Winter quarter).
