Policy Gives Students the Option to Work Remotely
In an increasingly digital world, engineering students need access to the technology required for their education. It is no longer feasible for essential schoolwork to be limited to computer labs during certain hours.
To help keep students more connected, the School of Engineering will begin providing required engineering software on student’s personal laptops beginning this fall. Programs that historically have been accessible only in computer labs will be available to students at home, at school, and anywhere they can comfortably access the Internet. In order to achieve this, every engineering student will be required to have a qualified laptop.
This policy aims to prepare students for the demands of 21st-century careers, which will require the use digital technology in independent as well as team-based workspaces. The policy also allows for future growth within the School of Engineering, since student computer use will no longer be limited by the number of computers in the labs.
