Computing facilities

The Department operates its own computing facilities. The computer equipment is, to a large extent, made possible by the income from our one-million dollar Adler Endowment. The facilities include:

  • The Adler Labs [ software available ]
    • Two labs with 51 Windows-based workstations located in Weir 227 and Weir 229
  • Several Linux and Windows Class Servers
    • Turing - Our general student-use CentOS server. This server is commonly used by our classes as it has support for multiple languages, such as Python, PHP, Ruby, and serives, such as Apache and MySQL.
    • Xinu - Server for the Operating Systems and Networking classes that utilizes the Xinu environment on top of modified Linksys WRT-54G routers.

 Regulations regarding use of the facilites are as follows:
