Crawford Wheatley Hall
The Department of Computer Science is located in the newly renovated Crawford Wheatley Hall. The Crawford Building, with a new annex, provides the department with a 17,500 Square Feet facility for classrooms, laboratories, conference rooms, offices for faculty, office for the secretary, student lounge, and workroom. The facility is adequate to support the instructional mission and methods for the department.
Faculty offices are located on the second floor. Faculty offices are equipped with computers connected to campus network, Internet access, and telephone. The school has recently replaced faculty computers with the new generation of computers. The printing requirements for faculty are met with laser quality printers and high quality color printer. A high quality scanner is placed in the faculty area. The department is further equipped with a copier and fax machines.
There are three classrooms (CWH 101, CWH104, and CWH 221). Each class can accommodate 30 students. Each classroom is equipped with overhead projection systems; access to the campus network including internet access. The classroom CWH 101 and CWH 221 are also equipped with computers. These computers are networked with the campus wide network. The other two classrooms are CWH 202 which is used for networking class and CWH 214 for security class. Since all the classes are held in the same building, students have easy access to the professor for discussions and consultation.
The Department of Computer Science has five academic computing labs, and special server rooms. The computing lab are: open lab (CWH 102), Networking lab (CWH 202), Security lab (CWH214), Multi-media lab (CWH 107). The total number of desktop computers in the school is approximately 130. These computers are served by several servers (Windows 7/2003/2008, Unix). These servers support academic programs by providing access to software programs like compilers, databases, design and development tools, etc..
Each student has adequate and reasonable access to the systems needed for each course. The Open Lab (CWH102) is available every day Monday-Thursday and is open for approximately 40 hours per week. The other Open Labs (Academic Skill Center, Library, and other labs on the university campus) are available. Students can checkout software copies from the department secretary.
The Department of Computer Science has a rich source of software available to students and faculty. In addition, there are commonly available university wide licensed software programs. The department is a member of Microsoft Academic Alliance, IBM Academic Alliance, VMWare Academic Program, and EMC Academic Alliance. Some programs are purchased by the department or received as a donation, e.g. the 15 licenses for the Liquid XML Studio from Liquid-Technologies Ltd.
